Who is it playing on the the Tegg's Nose Crane?
Goosander on Teggsnose Reservoir.
Forest Chapel, Macclesfield Forest.
Looking towards Shutlingsloe.
Evidence that it was still on the cold side.
The type of stone stile that Celia would appreciate!

Another good day for walking, a little on the cold side in the wind with the occasional snow flurry, and ice on the ground, especially on Chancery Lane leading to Forest Chapel. Good views all day.
Lunch was taken early in Macclesfield Forest, so that we could shelter from the wind.
Birds seen or heard today included: Blue tit, Great tit, Jackdaw, Carrion crow, Rook, Common buzzard, Common blackbird, Long-tailed tit, Coal tit, European robin, Common blackbird, Goosander, Mallad, Canada goose, Little grebe, Great cormorant and black-headed gull.
This is a superb, varied roller coaster of a walk, well worth repeating, in fact it is the third time that I have done this walk in the last twelve months.
After walk drinks were enjoyed in the warm environment of the Bird in Hand in Mobberley for the second time within a week. The only other hostelry that has that distinction is the Britannia Inn at Halkyn!
