Seckar HeathMonday 10th April 2000
Peacock and Comma butterflies are active. In the woodland surrounding the heath the first Bluebells are coming into flower.
An interesting features of the heath can also be a hazard to walkers. There are new warning signs about the narrow crevices you can encounter if you wander off the main track amongst the Gorse. These are cracks in the bed of sandstone that lies beneath the heath. They have a trend south-south-west to north-north-east, which suggests they are connected with the faults that run across the Yorkshire coalfield. Some of them have been adapted as burrows by Rabbits and Foxes.
