This has become a familiar local route - from Gretton via Harringworth and Wakerley, pause for a drink, and return via Kings Cliffe, Blatherwycke, Bulwick and Deene. Good weather, not too hot, not windy. A pleasant hiatus day between two spells of rain.
Black swans at Blatherwycke, along with a heron and a family of geese. Just outside the village there are llamas in a field.
We heard a cuckoo, for the second time this year.
Roughly 18 miles.
