Mindork Forest Walk


Went for a walk today round Mindork Forest (or Mindork Moss) today. Not a great day for photos but plenty of wildlife to be seen - lots of frogs, crossbills, buzzards, treecreepers plus all the usual suspects. First frog spawn of the year for me too!

Try and make something of this frog mess

Bit of a tangle
Just a small section of a pool containing hundreds of frogs. 

This frog posed nicely for me on the forest track

Male Crossbill in fine breeding colours. Singing beautifully too.

A nice pond to have lunch by.

View out of the forest towards the hills.
