Today was very hot (for me that is) and as I don't like the heat I decided to hold off a bit and go for an evening stroll when the temperatures had subsided somewhat. This proved to be a stroke of genius as the evening light over Highgate was just right for some landscape shots. The sky looked lovely too.
We did even more bracken bashing on Tuesday and we found three types of heather in one area. I was hoping to get some photos of the heather this evening but all the cross leaved heath (Erica tetralix) was in shade - not so good for photography.
I did manage to get some photos of the Bell Heather (Erica cinerea) before the sun dropped too low.
Other sightings of note were a Green Woodpecker, a party of Linnets, a low flying Common Buzzard, a few Tree Pipits flitting around and some Gatekeeper and Small Heath butterflies.
Enjoy the landscape shots below... or don't... it's up to you ;-)
