Harrock Hill

Around our revised Harrock Hill route again, squeezing it in before the alleged rain in the afternoon.

Nothing much of note except being chased through a field by a vicious pack of teenagers (cows).

Down by the reservoir we were photographing the Buddleia when we spotted a Hummingbird Hawkmoth zipping around the flowers.

Llangollen

Llangollen again, but backwards. Blowing a gale up the top again, it's as if someone or something is determined to blow my hat off everywhere I go.

Delamere Forest

Wandering around Delamere Forest, sheltering from the blazing sun.

Delamere route
More concerned with keeping cool and in the shade than photographing things. Loads of foxgloves on the path back, though.

Yorkshire (not as good as Lincolnshire, but we don't like to brag)

Moel Famau

A walk around Moel Famau, wiggling through the forest, but starting from Moel Arthur. Very steep bit at the start and end, but free parking!

Moel Famau route
Overcast, showers and blowing an absolute gale on the hills so not many photos.

Hollingworth Lake

Trying the new Hollingworth lake route again, now we know the way. No massive traffic jam on the way in this time, so the travel time isn't too bad (mostly motorway, so if you're early it's quite quick).

Very misty day, so no photos.
