With the school holidays over I was expecting it to be fairly quiet but the edges were very busy, although on the two sections across moor land I saw no one at all. The heather is in full bloom at the moment making the moors look particularly colourful but the ferns are already starting to go brown which is certainly a sign that summer is almost over.
