....and down in the valley

Sycamore buds are just beginning to burst on the trees in the valley bottom in Weardale, and there are some fine displays of aubretia in the drystone walls beside the river. We found yet another smashed egg, possibly of a house sparrow (?) – with peck marks that reveal that it was another victim of an egg thief.

  1. Aubretia always makes a magnificent show this time of year and it goes really well on the drystone wall.
