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.

  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!
