Pennines - Walk/Climb
Present: Alan Wylie, David Wylie, Peter Walker, Alan (Liverpool) Jones
Perhaps because of the lack of publicity, perhaps because of an abysmal weather forcast, or perhaps because everyone was still working to GMT, only four people turned up for a pleasant walk in glorious sunshine.
We got back to the cars just as the first spots of rain started falling, haveing spotted on the way at least several curlews, lots of mallards, several Canada geese*, a goldeneye (no, not the James Bond Movie), a golden plover, and some frogspawn.
We even got the first gritstone of the season in: wonderfully rough, but my poor hands bear the scars.
* Impossible to tell _exactly_ how many - it might have been just one pair following us around.
