In some ways, a walk similar to yesterday's: up on the roof of England, nobody else in sight, fantastic views and decent weather. The Great Wolf Stones are a prominent landmark and having passed quite near them twice on the Pennine Way, it was nice to see them close to today. The views from there are tremendous, all the way around.
Wildlife update. . As you might expect large wild animals are few & far between, though some of the cattle can be quite frisky. But I have seen lots of rabbits, several hares, a small thing that might have been a weasel or a stoat, a few deer, and lots of unfamiliar birds such as curlews, lapwings, and grouse. The grouse are impossible to spot in the heather, they wait until you are about to step on them before panicking and racing off, while you leap back, as startled as they are.
My favourites though are the curlews, they have such a recognisable and evocative call.
Tomorrow, thinking about climbing Pendle Hill
