Silver Howe and Blea Rigg

We had a great walk in the Lake District today, looking for sedges and dragonflies, but also taking in the wonderful scenery and enjoying the beautiful weather! We started from Grasmere, walked up to Silver Howe, along Blea Rigg and then back down to Grasmere via Easedale Tarn. We found a good selection of sedges, and saw at least three Golden-ringed Dragonflies, as well as Large Red Damselflies and Four-spot Chasers.
