While on that subject, we bought locally grown purple carrots in the
|Purple carrots - and potatoes!|
Dave is out in our awning at the moment printing off new Ordnance Survey maps for Bleasdale and its surroundings so we can take ourselves off for an exploratory walk this afternoon. The 300 acres of Broadgate Farm hosts large populations of wading birds that we hope we will get to see and there is even a small observation hide within a couple of minutes walk of our pitch. An unusual addition to a campsite. We did spot a smallish bird of prey yesterday afternoon. Two swallows were divebombing it to try and chase it away, but it never flew close enough for identification.
We plan to stay here for just over two weeks so we can get to know this Forest Of Bowland area. Fingers crossed that, as it's now August (already?!), summer might catch up with us here.
