Wintery walk on the Dales Way

Sam and I took Tussock out for a walk on the Dales Way to Ilkley this morning. We'd been to the Agraah and Flying Duck last night and I left my car in town. It was cold with the odd snow flurry but we all enjoyed the walking. There were some good birds around including heron and goosander on the river, and good numbers of goldfinch and redwing in the fields. We also spotted little owl apparently being mobbed by a blackbird. I think they are very territorial so it'll be worthwhile looking out again next time we're in that area

  1. I have visited the Derbyshire Dales in spring and summer and found the scenery to be surpassingly beautiful, but I would imagine it can be pretty fearsome in the winter.
