I set out from High Row at 6am in gorgeous sunshine. The midges were out though! After a navigational cockup I climbed High Brow from the South, which was a great viewpoint. The summits were clear of the valley inversion that was gradually rising. It was easy enough getting to Great Dodd. I visited all the high points before heading to a misty Calfhow Pike and a foggy Clough Head marked by the trig point. From the summit I headed East down grassy slopes to the Old Coach Road and the car. I saw nobody else on the hill. I saw plenty of Skylarks and Meadow Pipits along with a pair of Magpies and a vocal Dipper. A Vole was seen near Clough Heads summit shooting into his hole. Time 2 hours 40 for 9 miles.isabelle30/05/2018
