During August the heather is in bloom on the Bowland moors turning the landscape a beautiful shade of purple. The bright red-orange berries of rowan in wooded cloughs provide a rich feast for blackbirds, mistle and song thrushes during late summer.
Also look out for:
- Red grouse on the moors with their distinct 'go-back, go-back' call.
- Bilberries for picking.
- Dragonflies and damselflies on rivers, streams, pools and lakes.
