Swallows & Autumn Gentian photos
Following on yesterday from vismig, I went up Hutton Roof in the afternoon to check out the Gentians. On way up there were probably "hundreds" of Swallows weaving in and out of the massed "ragwort" lining both sides of the "deforested" upper Dalton areas, they were also so close to the ground, coming up in front of me so close it was truly magic! I did manage to take a very unusual photo, of where some of the Swallows actually came to a closeby tree top for a rest.
Also found another Gentian plant, amongst the rare "white specimens" (see photo above). The nice magenta coloured one was too cold and had closed up a little.
