Upper Teesdale; extended day out
BEES last visited Upper Teesdale in May 2009. Today we return for another chance to see spring gentians and other plants such as moonwort, birds-eye primrose and mountain pansy at Moor House National Nature Reserve. The linear route total distance to Cauldron Spout is about 3 miles, though the botanists may not make it all the way. On our last visit we were lucky enough to see ring ouzel and woodcock. We plan to call at High Force on the way home.
The area is very exposed (over 1,500 ft) so please wear warm clothing.
We will stop at the Tiger Inn near Knaresborough for food on the way home. Menus will be circulated in advance; we will limit our meal to a main course so bring extra food with you on the day if you need think you will need more.
Leaders: Alice Gingell and Julia Pearson
