Ennerdale wildie question

Posted by @ 10:56 am on Wednesday 10th October, 2007.

A bird (of the feathered variety) hassled me on the descent to the valley... could someone please give me a definite answer as to what it was? I've trawled through all of the relevant books in my mini-library but I can't find a positive match.

Thanks in advance.

    I concur, a wheatear. They have a persistent habit of flying along in front of you always staying a short distance ahead, as if showing you the way.

    The full set of pictures is excellent - looked like a cracking weekend.
    Not only does the place look good, but it sounds good - Scoat Fell! Whoap!

    Exclamations to conjure with, & no mistake.
