We left fairly bright and breezy (all things considered), but there was still time to go out for a walk before breakfast and make sure I'd got photos of everything I wanted a record of.
It was fantastic being in a place that had so many different species to those that I am used to at home. I've seen new birds and plants, and caught up with reptiles and amphibians that I haven't seen since I was a little girl.
The landscape in Dartmoor is breath-taking and it is well worth a visit if you want somewhere wild and spectacular to spend time in. You can walk for miles and never see a soul; the stars are bright as bright can be and you can go all day and never hear a car.
Here are the snaps from the last day...
|Cuckoo Flower, or Ladies Smock|
|The Green Lane up to the Tor|
|A Muslin Moth I found in the hallway of the Youth Hostel. That took my Moth Count to Three for the week, and all new ones that I hadn't seen before too :-)|
|The road out of the village up across the moors|
|Wildlife Area at Bellever YH|
