A walk in the mist at Grune Point near Silloth today... The other version of the windswept tree - prefer the ground on this one...

Whinlatter Forest walk today - got cut short to about 3 miles - 2/3 distance - due to forestry operations. Went on to Spout Force - a spectacular 60 foot waterfall on a beck where I often used to fish

Thanks Andy ☺🙏.  I was told about these foxes a few years ago but just never got around to going to see them.  The cubs are probably born now and still underground,  can't wait to return to see them in a couple of weeks time when they should be active above ground 😀

Ennerdale Water today - not been here since before we moved up permanently and still had Corner House at High Lorton as a holiday cottage - so about 27 years. This is a fantastic walk right round the lake - about 7.5 miles, most of it fairly easy, though it's a bit scrambly here and there. Funny last weekend there was thick snow on the tops - now it's like mid summer.

It's a very small patch Neil, I used to be a head gardener of this 2.5 acres many years ago, but I'm getting old.  The tree visible just to the left of the central lawn breaking the horizon is one I planted.1416351947_NorthCanonry.jpg.f7e9b18b332f59d4362cc62d15c25900.jpg

It is secret in that it's privately owned and not open to the public, it was fun working there, but the owner, being a multi-millionaire didn't like to part with his cash, so the budget was very tight and the wages ridiculously low.

Over to St Bee's head today as it's too windy and bright for fishing - not too much of a walk as the high winds were effing cold (up to the top of the head and then along the beach). A Stonechat and one of the local Ravens - couldn't get an angle that wasn't directly into the sun as it was on the cliff edge. It's the Isle of Man in the background on the pic the cliff and Scotland on the horizon on the shot looking along the cliffs. Dx

The recent chats about red kites and their proliferation makes this story from the BBC even more worrying...

Quote

A photographer is trying to raise awareness of the dangers of litter after seeing a red kite flying off with a discarded McDonald's cup. Chad Brown spotted the bird of prey last week in Stoke-by-Nayland, Suffolk.

"One dived down for what I thought was going to be prey, but instead the kite appeared with this McDonald's cup in its claws," he said.

Treecreeper with nesting materials . The picture from last week when i mentioned the nest cavity turned out to be correct so i will be keeping a special watch on this and hopefully if it,s not predated by Greater spotted woodpecker, Squirrels, Stoats, or Weasel,s  i may get the chance to see and photograph the fledglings 

Also there,s a heavily cropped  record picture from 6.20am today of a pair of Common Scoter they where about 300 metres out in the lake and stayed there but its the first time ive seen them when ive had a camera with me plus they are actually a Sea Duck

Another fantastic circular walk this afternoon from Caldbeck up to the top of Faulds Brow (a baby sized fell with fabulous views over the Solway) then down along a lovely little river and through a hidden gorge. Only about 4.5 miles all-in and only 12 miles from home! Dx

Sunrise on Rivington Pike. I went looking for the five Ring Ouzel that are there at the moment, No joy for me but two other birders managed a quick sighting before they flew off, 

Meadow Pipit all fluffed up against the cold this morning at 6am

Thanks Neil.  ☺.  Rivington pike just outside Manchester is a very popular place especially  when the weather is good,  like this  morning.  The views are amazing from the top. Lake District to the north, Snowdonia this morning and the Great orme  at Llandudno, the whole of the Cheshire plain.  At 8.30am there was walkers,  runners,  mountain bikers,  dog walkers a plenty and I was on the quiet side,  there's very limited car parking -possibly 30 cars . Whereas the busy side has parking for 100,s.

You know the area the well then Neil. 😁. Yeah guess I'm pretty local to just about everything soul wise , apart from the 100 club nothing is more than 2 hours away. Which I'm still prepared to drive for a dose of soul 😚

Used to love Morecambe nighters at both the Pier and the Carlton club. Still have a few good friends up there.

Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year Award

Quote

Freight train driver Dylan Nardini has been crowned this year's Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year.

He won the overall prize with a portfolio of three images taken on the Isle of Arran, at Leadhills and Chatelherault Country Park in South Lanarkshire.

The 47-year-old from Hamilton has been interested in photography since a young age, but says he developed his passion for landscapes through his work driving trains for the last 28 years.

 All absolutely cracking images - this is one of Nardini's winners.

Neil. We must have met somewhere down the line. I was lucky enough to DJ at the Carlton club a few times. I was also a regular at Station Road for the last 6 years before it sadly closed down.  😔. I met Derek Mead a few times that used to run Bisley but never actually got there. Missed out once when they had a casino revival night with Steve Whittle, Brian Rae and Keith Brady  ( rip  ) I should have travelled down with them but never did for some reason or another.  Still see Shaun Gibbons and have the craic with him and Pete Halis.
