Fence across moorland
Fence across moorland
The fence is a recent addition to the landscape. It's a common enough post and wire construction but with a tape running as a top strand rather than the usual barbed wire. It's supposed that the tape is there as an alert for low-flying grouse which can be found regularly, dead beside moorland fences having flown into them due to not being able to discern the thin wires. The tape actually has metal threads running through the plastic weave; such tapes are used as electric fences particularly temporary ones but this one is not electrified.
