Lyme Park

Another revisit of somewhere we haven't been for a few years. This time around Lyme Park and the surrounding countryside.

 Nothing much of interest along the early part of the walk (once we'd found it), then we happened across a small collection of caterpillars near Higher Poynton.

Closely followed by some cold, slimy carryings-on in the undergrowth...

Lunch on a grassy knoll by a small stream in Lyme Park, surrounded by grasshoppers and "leggy things". This is the only hopper that came close, even then it backed almost completely into the grass. If it didn't move it would be almost impossible to see.
