Saturday 17 March 2012: Boundary
Here's another part of the moor boundary, about halfway between the tree that featured in Moor Fog and the field shared by the highland cattle and the lapwings. You can see the clear difference between the semi-improved rough pasture on the left, and the common land of Baildon Moor on the right. I think the barbed wire is more to keep sheep leaping out from the field, than to keep people from leaping in.
The boundary is where you find some of the interesting wildlife, and on my short walk up from home I saw one of the resident little owls, perched in their regular spot. It's a couple of years since I did a complete circumnavigation of the Baildon Moor boundary wall, although I regularly visit different stretches.
It's good to walk the line.
