I am sure this winter has been windier than normal! To back up this theory I attach a few photos of a wire fence just off Sheffield Road. The sheer power of the wind blasting Big Moor up here has ripped off the old dead molinia leaves and blasted them against the wire fence to give this rather pleasing appearance!
If there were any sheep on here, which of course there are not, I am sure you would see them lined up in the lea of this new ‘hedge’ taking shelter. As it is the structure is somewhat wasted for now. It will be interesting to see how long it lasts. One thing is certain, there is no shortage of nest building material up here!
