There are many pictures of the walk at
Welcome to BirdForum, Nigel - glad you found us.

Penrith is my home town, though I only get to visit once a year these days, when I go to see my parents. My husband is a railway enthusiast, so we're always interested in the rumours about reinstating the Keswick line. It's a pity they didn't think of its possible popularity as a tourist attraction all those years ago when it was first closed.

Still haven't got a Kingfisher in the UK, but did get our life Dippers on the Greta.
