Crinkle Crags, Cumbria

It was a glorious yet bitterly cold day in the Lake District. We climbed Pike O'Blisco and then Crinkle Crags from Langdale, before descending down the Band to the Old Dungeon Ghyll hotel for a well earned drink by the open fire!

Is this the Arctic? Looking back along the route we had just taken, from Crinkle Crags.

Rainford mosslands

I had a quick bike ride around the mosslands this morning, and as has been the trend recently, saw next to no birds. 300 Pink-feet and 2 Buzzards in Dairy Farm Road the only birds of note. Other than that the highlight was a singing Robin in Berrington's Lane. Oh well, here's hoping for better things in the coming weeks.

Happy New Year everybody!
