30 Days Wild - Day 12 - Highland Cattle beside Hellifield Churchyard

 12th June: Arriving early for an evening "Churches Together in Settle and District" Planning meeting at Hellifield,  I leaned over the churchyard wall to see the Highland Cattle quietly grazing, with the noisy road to Skipton beyond.


To the north of the church lies the hill  called Hellifeld Haw (see range of my camera) .. down which our former  local postman used to roll Easter eggs as a child.


Looking under my feet on the cobbles of the footpath I saw 
Procumbent Pearlwort, a tiny plant

Metzgeria fruticulosa (violacia) Bluish Veilwort - a thallose liverwort on tree. this grows where there are lots of nitrogen compounds in the air.
