zooming down onto the strange rocks in Fleswick Bay

the steep climb up from Fleswick Bay

looking north from the first RSPB viewpoint

looking south from the second RSPB viewpoint

zooming in on the hundreds of guillemots on the cliffs

watching a hovering kestrel

looking towards Whitehaven from the cliffs

the Lakeland skyline ahead just before we leave the Coast to Coast route

a couple of small ponies - not very interested in friendly advances
