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
