Sunday 3rd September ...

 

Saturday 2nd September, 3.30 p.m. Purple heather and yellow gorse on St Agnes Beacon

 

 

We climbed up the path on the St Agnes side of the hill

 

 

Approaching the summit past a lichen covered rock outcrop

 

 

The trig point on the summit

 

 

Towards St Agnes village and Perranporth

 

 

The view past Chapel Porth towards Portreath and Godrevy

 

 

Earlier in the summer there were several gorse fires on the lower slopes of St Agnes Beacon.  I didn't take any photos of the burnt area yesterday but these pictures from two weeks ago are similar to what it still looks like.

 

 

About 20% of the heathland here has been destroyed - very sad.  It will take a long time to recover.

 

 

Changing the subject completely, here is a dragonfly (a Common Darter) photographed last Monday on a pickerel rush flower in our garden pond
