A barley field near a wind farm near Stanhoe, Norfolk, UK.


It's Geohashing Day. Aim for a 4pm arrival. It's close to a right of way. Crops might prevent access.



Just before 4pm, at the hashpoint, GeohashDroid went on the blink. It was my fault. I'd purged my phone's storage to free up space and had failed to re-enter any credentials needed by the app. It took a while to remember how to fix all that so my photo uploads were made quite near but not at the hashpoint.

It was an enjoyable outing in fine spring weather. The barley field was coming into flower and I had a fierce attack of hay fever about 45 minutes after leaving the field. I mostly stuck to tractor tracks but still stirred up quite a lot of pollen.

There was a very nice wildlife/biodiversity zone with a weedy area full of flowers for bees and other polinators. That zone also provided cover for birds and animals. There was a small copse with trees and undergrowth. More diverse habitat. It would be good if more farmers did this and over larger areas too.
