Outdoor Daily II

Kit Hill is a small outcrop of granite between Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor and wonderfully atmospheric in the mist.

Small but perfectly formed, it provides a variety of habitats, including heath and stands of scrubby oak, a quarry lake and wetland, quarry rock waste and underground workings of abandoned metal mines.

There is always something of interest, from adders bathing in the warmth of early sunny days in spring, to a falcon hovering in search of prey and the fungi emerging in autumn.

There is a saying around here that kissing is only allowed when the gorse is in bloom…which, luckily, is all year round.
