River Lickle

The River Lickle is one of the less well known rivers of the Lake District, flowing south-west through quiet countryside from Walna Scar into the Duddon west of Broughton-in-Furness.

River Mite

The Mite is one of the quiet rivers of West Cumbria, flowing through the grassy fells between Eskdale and Wasdale. On a day when the better known valleys are too crowded, Miterdale can be a welcome refuge.

River Lowther

The River Lowther runs though attractive countryside on the north-eastern side of the Lake District, where the fells begin to merge in the Pennines.

Bilsdale is the valley of the River Seph, and one of the longest dales in the Moors, running from the north-western edge of the moors between Hasty Bank and Urra Moor to its junction with the River Rye about a miles east of Hawnby.

Coal Tit

Smaller and more agile than the Great Tit or Blue Tit, the Coal Tit is an adept feeder in conifers and a regular visitor to peanut feeders in British gardens.

River Esk

The River Esk is probably my favourite Lake District river, running through stunning scenery from its source all the way to the sea
