August at Allargue

Just one month has passed, and the hillside is now coated in purple heather, with patches of sphagnum moss, cranberries, blaeberries, foxglove and tiny yellow tormentil. There are coveys of grouse and hares on the moor, trout in the river and we spotted all sorts of other wildlife in a single morning – from a beautiful owl to Mr Toad, hopping round a peat bog.
