Set off with the intention of exploring beyond Malham, but low cloud and little visibility necessitated a change of plan. Back in Settle a walk along the Ribble as it flows towards Lytham (near Blackpool) reaped rewards.
First a dipper. I love watching these tough little tubbies as they dunk and dive, swim under gushing water and, if they’re lucky, pop up with a snack.
A break in the cloud threw a sliver of sunlight over Settle, albeit briefly.
Life in the Dales: shifting sheep from one pasture to another; cattle enjoying the comfort of a barn; a nosey tup taking a break from the girls!
Ruined barns and dwellings make you wonder
Back in Settle a local lurks – look out birdies!
