Baxton Fell - 17 September

Meandering on a warm sunny afternoon from Slaidburn over Dunsop Head to Upper Whitendale remembering a long day here in 2014 to bag White Hill. Baxton Fell seemed too good to miss until we fell for a trod that seemed to bee-line to summit. In fact is disappeared a considerable way short of the summit and heather bashing became the "order of the day." 

Sadly, we came across what we thought was, probably, a dead female Hen Harrier but having sent some photos to the RSPB we and they are happy it is a red grouse. Apart from the bit of heather bashing this was a delight and it is too long since we spent time in this part of Bowland.
