Rural Ramble Around Urpeth

Posted by Caz on Friday, 31st May 2013

Another sunny day it turned out to be, despite an unpromising start. Alistair and I decided to tackle the big geocaching circular walk around Urpeth in County Durham. We saw lots of wildlife, including a few butterflies who were willing to sit still for us. I’m pleased with this shot, taken with my Canon PowerShot G12 – which is not the ideal equipment for wildlife close up images!

The toys found some Magic Mushrooms along the way, there was Wild Garlic in the woodlands and Green & Pleasant Land all around. Here are the rest of the pictures from the day (including some of the lesser-spotted Alistairius MacDonaldensis) 😉

The terrain was varied and followed the Team Valley for some of the route. There was plenty of wildlife to be seen, and the scent of wild garlic accompanied us on much of the walk in the wooded areas. Read more about today’s Rural Ramble. […]
