Hardcastle Crags

Tuesday 1st May, 2018

Our destination today is the Hardcastle Crags estate, which encompasses a wide variety of terrain with oak, beech and pine woods and some of the best examples of upland meadows in the country.  Once parked we shall walk to Gibson Mill (toilets available) and then take some of the many footpaths through the site to hopefully see bluebells in all their spring glory.  Spring migrants will have returned so there should be opportunity for our birders to watch the unfolding frenzy of the nesting season.  Walking distance will be in the region of 2 - 3 miles, perhaps on some uneven surfaces, with the possibility of mud, depending on conditions.

Leader: Sally Tetlow and Steve Casling
