this morning's wet walk: Threlkeld to Keswick with the bird watching group of the new Skiddaw U3A

not yet raining as I cross Portinscale Bridge towards Keswick

still flooding in the fields with Latrigg in the distance

Skiddaw from the milestone on what used to be the main Keswick to Cockermouth road

mallard enjoying the flood with Walla Crag and Bleaberry Fell in the distance

a strong west wind and water on the path to Keswick

starting the walk at the Horse and Farrier in Threlkeld - now in heavy rain

one of the bridges on the old railway ..

.. we are watching a tree creeper in these trees

a lot of water in the River Greta today

a tree down over the railway path - no need to report it as we met the ranger coming to sort it out

Glenderaterra Beck running down into the River Greta
