The Lower Burgh Meadow again - thought I had seen all there was to see on the meadow but we spotted this - we knew we could see the old  Coppull Ring Mill but this was a pleasant surprise it is St John the Divine in Coppull it is very distinctive with what I call the corner turret.

Thursday 14 August

Another dry morning on the Lower Burgh

 The Hogweed seeds must be good as the slug is at least 5 foot of the ground

 Three quarters way up was the snail
 That's a fair shell to haul up for a bit of dinner

We went to the Spinners Arms at Cowling for dinner
On the car park we felt lots of eyes watching us - on looking up we spied the cattle all trying to get under the small trees - they must have known we were in for a down pour as it started raining as we set off home.
