Birker Fell – 07 August

A short outing to bag the last of the Birketts west of Green Crag. The last time we were here was the day before a JNLC recce with Michele and we wanted an easy afternoon which was a pity because we preferred not to bag the remaining 3 Birketts beyond Green Crag. Of course, it left us with an excuse to come back again but the most obvious way to reach these three is from the Ulpha road which is separated from the fells by a stretch of tussocky bog. These are quiet hills enjoying very fine views of the Southern Fells with Harter Fell dominating the near ground.
