Took advantage of the fair weather window and did a local walk. Scunthorpe upto Normanby Park. Ok, so only 9 miles, return but I enjoyed it. The icing on the cake was hearing the loud 'tap, tap' of a woodpecker in the park grounds. Couldn't see it, but did spot a tree creeper.

Did my favourite walk today, from Collafirth hill to Stonga banks, Over Ronas Hill which was covered with snow. Then along to Lang Clodie Wick. All the five 70 - 80 metre waterfalls were blowing backwords due to the Westerly wind, they were powerful after the last few days rain . I then cut inland, visiting the waterfall at Birka Water, then back up the Northern ridge of Mid Field before contouring around back to Collafirth. Only 11.2 miles with 742 metres ascent but superb wild walking. Plenty of birds including 5 whooper swans, 2 woodcock and 9 White hares.
I visited Lang Clodie Wick last week in the opposite direction following a different route, but the low sun tends to be in your eyes for a big part of the trip ( Still brilliant though)

White hares....how amazing. Been on the watch for those in the Peak district recently, without success. The wildlife on your walk must have lifted your spirits and delighted you.

Across the Humber Bridge. Mixture of buses and walking from Scunthorpe to Cottingham.  Only because its over 20 years ago that I last did it. Enjoyed the 8 miles.

On Friday we did a 3.5 mile walk at Thornham Walks in North Suffolk in anticipation of the storms this weekend. Masses of snowdrops
