Mewing, circling…

A buzzard circles and mews over Newton Moor.

Buzzard (Buteo buteo)

The heather on the moor is beginning to fade, although it is still striking enough.

Highcliffe farm carries on, perched in the lee of Highcliff Nab.

There is a wall dividing the moor from the farmland.

The shooting butts march off into the heather on the moor.

Purples, yellows and greens are the dominant colours here.

The farm’s cattle carry on grazing.

In the woods, the elderberries are ripening.
