this afternoon's short walk: the osprey viewpoints in Dodd Wood


the head of Bassenthwaite Lake from my starting point


zooming in over the lake to Barf


wayside flower and two bees


the head of Bass Lake from the lower osprey viewpoint - ospreys can be seen through the telescope


Bass Lake from the track to the upper viewpoint ..


.. and again looking down Bass Lake


view across the River Derwent from the upper viewpoint


zooming in on Derwentwater and Portinscale


the head of Bass Lake from the upper viewpoint


back at the start after heavy rain with more cloud now on the fells ..


.. and a lot of wind blowing the trackside vegetation
