A word of warning. The walk descriptions are not detailed enough to guide you - please take a map. The batteries never run out, and you always have a signal. Oh, And don't take left or right as gospel!

Pitsford Water clockwise

With Maureen and Gordon. About 7 miles.

The weather has been consistently gloomy - drizzle, rain, showers with little sign that there's anything above the clouds. Cancelled walks, walks called off at the last minute . . Still, today has been drier, but since the thought of wading through ankle deep mud on paths or fields was distinctly unappealing, we fell back on this old standby.  There were a few other sufferers from cabin fever out in the air as well.

We left all but essentials (waterproofs, money for refreshments) in the car, parked at the Causeway. Even the camera stayed behind, only to be used on our return.

Plenty of water birds around, including swans and cygnets, and a tern.

We were lucky enough to escape anything wetter than a few drops of drizzle, and at least we stretched our legs!
