On the Stairs

On the Stairs


A "stilish" walk - lots of them en route. The stiles got progressively narrower.

Wildlife: black rabbit, dead rat, white ducks, hen harem, thousands of lapwings, oyster catchers, curlews, wren, heron, finches, frogspawn. Also new-born lambs.

Lots of waterfalls - very spectacular. Nice view at lunch, near some buried cars - 75% sure that one was a Landrover. Saw a knife in the stream, near George G's watershute. Later saw a bull hiding in the hay. George B became stuck in a quagmire of cowpat, in the "shitty farmyard". Lots of barking dogs, and an old rusty tractor.
