First, to clarify. It’s a wetland woodland, it’s not a wet walk…or at least, it’s not so wet at this season (in fact, we’re in drought here).
Monday 26th August, bus across the marshes to Acle, then head to Damgate Carr. Our destination is a couple of old mills out in the marshes (but more of that next week).
A wise walker keeps to the paths in this woodland…
Ahead, the sun streams through a gap in the trees. Stark lighting poses a challenge for the camera
Where I grew up we didn’t have reeds in our woods…this slays me and delights me
It seems late in summer for honeysuckle to bloom, yet here it is, reaching up to the sun
More water, more reeds, more duckweed turning it all a vivid green…
And spider webs. These are everywhere. It is the season
As are the dragonflies…not so easy to capture!
And hops…here, climbing through a holly tree
And miniscule bugs….
Damgate Carr is a good place to find fungi. But not in this drought. Well, that’s what we say as we’re walking along…then we’re proved wrong…
And there I leave you. Hope you enjoyed. If so, please join me for the second part of this walk, Weavers Way. Have a good week, folks
