A Country Walk


This country walk centred around the site of the Iron Age Fort of Maiden Castle, Dorset which is about a 1.7 miles from my home. There is plenty of nature to see around that area. 
The grass land is unspoilt and only some areas are grazed by sheep. 
The topography of the location is 230 feet to 450 feet above sea level.

  1. Nice to see some countryside that's not all given over to crops. I don't know if it's just me but there seem to be more Marbled Whites around this year.

  4. Wonderful to have a place like this so close to home! Love all the pics, but the poppies in amongst the wheat really stands out and would make amazing wall art!
