Looking across Spade Mill reservoirs

Beacon Fell on the left with Parlick towards the right

Had seen this structure on a previous walk - but now I know what it is used for!

Gorse brightens the day

A misty morning over Beacon Fell . . .

and Parlick

No social distancing here!

Forget me Nots now blooming

Looking back at The Plank - care needed to get off it!

In better condition

The cows have arrived back in the fields

Putting on a good show!

Spade Mill reservoirs

Upper Dilworth Reservoir

Spotted at 8am near home

7.30am and no-one in the park

Lord's Lane, 0.3 miles to the north . . .

and 0.3 miles to the south . . .

and no-one in sight . . .

apart from me and my shadow

Playing fields, 0.6 miles circumference and no-one in sight at 8.50am!

Deer spotted again as before

A sad end to the month
