This catkin looked so like a caterpillar! There was a lot of diseased, but very photogenic, ivy (photo #4), and the last one is young, fresh nettles.
And then as we got to the watermeadow, we saw these delightful Highland cattle. They've been there for a couple of years now, it seems - but they certainly weren't the last time we were there. Isn't it funny how they have different horns? They looked quite small, too, compared with "regular" cattle.
