Ilkley Moor Mipits

Meadow Pipits perched on stony outcrops above the bracken, heather and bilberry at Ilkley Moor.

A Warbler (Willow Warbler perhaps) hopped from branch to branch on a conifer gathering insects.

I spotted 20+ Small Tortoiseshell caterpillars on nettles.


  1. Love seeing your birds and your caterpillars....
    Nettles are some of my most favorite wildflowers....
    The photograph of the Meadow PIpits is charming.

  2. Nice photos Linda - I really like the last one of caterpillars on nettle. I keep checking the nettles in our garden in the hope of seeing some caterpillars but no signs yet!

  3. Lovely collection, Linda. I keep checking the nettles for caterpillars ... but haven't seen any yet in 2012.

  4. I like that first photo of the pipit on the rock.

  5. These are amazing photos, what a great bird watching spot!

  6. I particularly like the first image of the Meadow Pipit Linda and I hope all those Caterpillars make it, we need them up flying.{:)

  7. Hello Sherry, thanks for stopping by, it was great to see the Meadow Pipits.

    Hello both Carolines,yes keep checking the nettles, I can't stop myself from having a quick scan whenever I see a nice nettle patch.

    Thank you Bob
