The sphagnum mosses are enjoying this deluge of rain...they can hold up to 20 times their weight in water!!! Such an important sponge preventing floods in this weather ❤

Have you heard your first #curlew of the year yet? The #NorthPenninesAONB is a hotspot for breeding waders and #curlews arrive in great numbers each year. Record your sightings as part of the Northern Upland Chain's project monitoring these wonderful birds https://t.co/E9ElVSIex3
