Sunbiggin Tarn










Had a short visit to Sunbiggin Tarn today, There is usually something up there to make the trip worth while . unfortunately on the tarn itself the only things visible were two fishing boats and a pair of swans. O n the fell around the tarn there was quite a few Meadow pipits around and Wheatear. Not too far from the tarn is probably the most northerly limestone outcrops and pavement. these were attracting a couple of Ravens , and quite a few crows . Back down the road I heard a Willow warbler and that was about it , but the sun was shining so it was a good day . The Northern Marsh orchid was a nice find and every crevice on the pavement had the Hartstongue in it.
