Stones and open spaces

Stone from Widemouth bay: what are those lines? Geologists?

I criss-crossed Cornwall and Devon over the last long weekend. Geology written large across the landscape, Tors in Dartmoor, old seabeds and strata exposed on Cornish seasides. I wish I knew more, I wish I remembered all I read clearly.

Bristol's other urban wildlife

I've seen foxes on three or four occassion already. There are birds, insects and flowers, spring is truly here. Yet these intrigued me the most so far...
