Yesterday we were on another work party at Ennerdale. We did do some work in the morning but managed not to take any pictures. We were removing fences near the Scout Camp, here we are enjoying lunch by the River Liza. After the nights rain there was plenty of water flowing through After lunch we spotted a buzzard in the trees
We then moved over to Crag Fell to check the birch we planted a few years ago & plant some more. One of the fixed points we needed to photograph was on the way so Karen stopped to take a couple of panoramas. The day had been good upto then but the cloud was starting to come in so they haven't come out that well, we will return on a sunny day to re-take these.
At the planting site Crag was being very helpful wanting sticks thrown
We checked that the original trees were alive & replaced the protector on those, the ones that hadn't survived were replaced & to show what needed doing we left the protectors at 90degrees to the stakes
It was described as looking a bit like a battlefield with the crosses
On Monday we went for a walk at Ennerdale with the dogs, it wasn't the greatest weather so just a few pictures.
The Galloway were resting just inside the forest, for such big animals they could be quite threatening, but they don't ever seem to be bothered by humans or dogs
A rare shot of Crag in the water & Bess on the path
Normality has been restored
It was about 6degrees when we left the car, but felt colder up the valley, this was proven by the ice that still remains on High Beck
Lunch was at Pillar Bridge
