turning East off the path (running North from Robin Hood Farm) and climbing up to Birchen Edge
 
in distance South behind us (over the unseen Heathy Lea Brook) is Gibbet Moor
zoomed into flowering tree and found sheep shading themselves from the unusually hot sun (20C) at this time of year.

Bar Brook
Green Skunk Cabbage below - an invasive species from North America - leaves apparent turn yellow and smell like skunks -eradication could be a problem.
