Run up from the east side of Meldon Reservoir followed a stream to the east of Homerton Hill up on to the plateau. Ran slowly across the open moor to High Willhays. Close to the stream I saw a Grey Wagtail higher up there were a few Crows and plenty of Skylarks. Had a chat on the summit and enjoyed the view. Could clearly see the North Devon coastline and the sea. Ran easily to Yes Tor where I said hello to a couple hunkered down in the rocks. Easy run back to the start across the trackless moor. Saw my first Wheatear of the year. Time taken an hour for 4 miles.isabelle14/06/2020

Round of Hangingstone Hill, Cut Hill, High Willhays and Yes Tor from parking at East Okement Farm. Torrential rain. Solo round in fell running gear but not possible to run on much due to difficulty of terrain (uneven clumps of grass). Several water crossings. Deep mud in parts. 14 miles total in 4hrs 15min.axoree19/12/2019

Run from Sourton Church up over Sourton Torís along the old railway to Great Links Tor. I t took me a few minutes to remember the easiest climb to the actual summit which was very easy as the only technical move is low down. I headed on to the remains of Bleak House. I remember camping by it in 1990 and it was a lot more substantial then. I took the path up to Kitty Tor. The cloud broke and it was warm in the sunshine. I headed down to Sandy Ford and then up High Willhays and Yes Tor before running back to Sourton via the top end of Meldon reservoir. For the 11 miles it took 2 hours 30 minutes. I saw Wheatear, Linnets, Skylark, Meadow Pipit, Buzzard, Kestrel and Ravens.isabelle04/08/2019
