|Just a few metres from home and I was pleased to see that this family of Mallard ducklings were growing up and appear to be doing well.|
|Through Curwen Woods and across to Slape Lane...the woods carpeted with Bluebells|
|Orchid...but which one?|
|I left Slape Lane and entered Pickles Wood...managed by the Cumbria Wildlife Trust.|
It ha apparently had continuous cover since the medieval period and therefore a unique habitat.
|Higher up the fell in Lancelot Clark Storth, this old front axle was beside the track. Off a Grey Fergie perhaps? No doubt left after it had been used to demolish some of the Limestone Pavement in this area. Those wheel bearings look past it to me!|
|The summit Trig on Hutton Roof Crags, or more correctly Ploverlands...it's a Marilyn as well.|
|Lots of Gorse on the way back to Newbiggin Lane...a wonderful coconut aroma through here|
|Naughty Cows...this one in the foreground most definitely the ring leader!|
I walked back across Home Park Fell arriving back just as a few spots of rain fell...the first for about a month from memory.
