Some of the family were going to Low Force on Sunday so i thought i would tag along having never been.
As i walked through the woods to the Wynch Bridge a Spotted Flycatcher and a Tree Creeper gave a nice start to the day.
The falls soon came into view a what a treat they were.
The view however, was soon spoiled by a group of Foster Beer wielding teenagers turning up to do a bit of Tombstoning into the deep pools below the falls.
Anyway, further up the river two Common Sandpipers were spied along with Grey Wagtail.
There were some interesting flowers to see. One of which was pointed out to me by a kind gent who informed me that it was quite rare to see now.
Bird's Eye Primrose
Below, some of the others seen.
Early Marsh Orchid
Not sure on this one Vetch Maybe ?
Bird's Foot Trefoil
And a couple of Wee Cowrin' Timorous Beasties.
It had a very humourous face this one.
A Weevil of some kind
And a Moth Caterpillar of the Aphelia Genus
We returned to the falls which by now had become a Lido for the numpties. They were everywhere throwing empty beer cases and cans straight into the river. WHY ?
We stopped at the visitors center to have a coffee and got a wonderful show of Crepuscular rays from above.
A path led away from the visitors center to another waterfall of who ms name escapes me at the mo. We saw two Dippers along the burn and plenty of Brown Trout in the pools.
It was nice and quiet here no numpties. To far for them to walk.
A few more pics from the day
A fantstic place that deserves another visit perhaps midweek when the numpties are signing on.
Side note thanks to Emma for flower updates. Cheers.
