|Cheshire plain from Teggs Nose Country Park|
|Ox-eye Daisies (Leucanthemum vulgare)|
One of the spcialities of the area is Mountain Pansy, found on the higher slopes with shorter grass. It was pleasing to see a number of these delicate flowers, all except one yellow, as in the picture, but one a deep bluish violet.
|Common Spotted Orchid (Dactylorhiza fuchsii)|
|Mountain Pansy (Viola lutea)|
Grasses identified were: Crested Dog's-tail, Cock's-Foot, Yorkshire Fog and Quaking Grass, and Scaly Male Fern was common in the quarry area.
Birds seen included Great Tit, Skylark, Magpie, Wood Pigeon, Swallow, Swift and a Heron.
Unfortunately we did not see the Weasel family, seen last year at the same time in the quarry.
A wonderful sunset brought a photographer up just as we were leaving - a fitting end to a very pleasant evening.
