Day 1 – to Ennerdale Bridge

Brilliant sunny day to start from St Bees. PMR’s invaluable expertise on the cliffs helped us see fulmers, kittiwakes, cormorants, guillemots, razor bills and jackdaws and later inland we saw crows seeing off a buzzard. Flower lovers had much to admire including a big patch of early purple orchids on the cycle path around Moor Row. Wild strawberries and raspberries await walkers later in the year.
Our feet survived the first day. Hope this glorious weather lasts while we are in the Lake District.
