a warm July day Walter Mason led fifteen members of our group to the
lower reaches of Kinder Scout. We walked from the centre of Hayfield
towards Kinder Reservoir observing the differing bird life along the
way - sanderlings running along the water's edge, and further on,
lapwings, curlews and grouse; plus numerous wild flowers (
Whatever happened to those I Spy books?)
We stopped to eat our butties with an excellent view from the hill over the reservoir before making our way back across Middle Moor, past the shooting cabin, to Little Hayfield.
Many thanks to Walter for leading this walk and providing such good weather!
I would like to thank all those members of the High Lane U3A who were kind enough to send me cards and good wishes during my recent illness in particular members of the Bowling Section.
It is nice to see you up and around again
