Walk from Tarn Hows to Hawkshead 9th June

Five members enjoyed a scenic and sociable  walk from Tarn Hows to Hawkshead and back via Rose Castle. We started in drizzle but then enjoyed some sunshine and beautiful views of the fells. We enjoyed  historic buildings such as the 15 C courthouse and beautiful rhododendrons and azaleas in gardens we passed. The flora and fauna included a curlew, dipper, comfrey and orchids,  It was apt that we walked  with care across a field where curlews were nesting  as we had heard from Susannah Bleakley of Morecambe Bay Partnership about the importance of protecting curlew nests.
