A good day for walking, but it was a little on the humid side for comfort. This turned out to be very much an up and down walk of great variety, and felt a lot longer than it actually was!
The birds seen or heard today included: carrion crow, Raven, Black-billed magpie, Barn swallow, Common buzzard, Stonechat, Meadow pipit and Kestrel.
An enjoyable walk, and quite tiring,I was really looking forward to a pint at the Farmers Arms at Kelsall, alas it was closed with plastic cones across the entrance to the car park! We ended up at the Boot at Willington, where I was able to enjoy a pint Wheetwood best bitter.
This is certainly a walk that will be repeated in the future.
