Ingleby Moor

No excuse but another photo of the purple. It’s that time of the year. Have to make the most of it. The season does not last long. Had a pootle around the upper reaches of Baysdale. This is from the east side of Tidy Brown Hill, overlooking Black Beck, a tributary of Baysdale Beck. In spite of the overcast day, the heather does indeed look splendid but let us not forget it represents a man-made monoculture developed over the last two hundred years solely to maximise the production of grouse for the shooting industry. A poor eco-system. It is refreshing that on the far west-facing side of the beck there are flushes of green indicating damper conditions encouraging the growth of mosses, reeds and grasses.
