The high moorland on Askrigg Common looking towards Penhill. The high fells are home to much of the Dales wildlife.

A Meadow Pipit gets its feathers ruffled in the high wind...


...this young rabbit also tries to keep a low profile, is it because of the wind or a predator.


A bird you can't miss, either by sight or sound. The Curlew is widespread in the UK from the shoreline to deep inland. Although it's widespread throughout Europe the Curlew status is still declining.




The brightly coloured Golden Plover with its beautifully patterned feathers blends well with grasses on the fells.




On watch, but for what?


...its young offspring, off on a walk.
