A Misty Tor Morning

We have been blessed with some spectacular mist and clouds over the past couple of weeks. Above is a 30 minute video and some images of a recent misty morning Tor Walk.

Some of the moody views and some interesting little discoveries, including a strange mushroom called the collared earth star and a tufty creature that grows on wild roses, known as a robin’s pin cushion, which is formed by a gall wasp, similar to oak galls. Lastly is the oaks “Lammas burst”; the spurt of growth that it puts on towards the end of the summer.
