Date: Monday 10th July 2017
Weather: A lovely Summers evening
Leader: Graham Thomas/John Wilson
Party Number: 10
Distance and Time: 2.5 miles 2 hours
Ten Members set off from the viewpoint overlooking Anglezarke Reservoir and descended through Bracken around the top of a Quarry to a Woodland path along the bottom of the Quarry then along a path by the side of Anglezarke Reservoir. We found a path to walk through a wood along the back side of High Bullough Reservoir. A small party of Tufted Duck was seen on the waters.
Back at the main path we took a path opposite to walk around a portion of Woodland that overlooked Anglezarke Reservoir. This lovely woodland had a lot of old Beeches.
Back at the main path we walked alongside Anglezarke Reservoir then climbed steps to an upper Car Park then a road. We turned left and climbed steeply back to the Car Park.
Seven of the group retired the The Bay Horse at the top of Babylon Lane after a lovely Summer's evening.
This time of year is quiet as the Birds have breed and no longer need to attract a mate so not many species were seen or heard.
