A very peaceful part of the Peak District.  Easy, fairly level walking on quiet footpaths and tracks alongside the upper reaches of the Little Don River. Distance no more than 4 miles but this will be tailored to the group. With a great mix of habitats from woodland to moor with a river thrown in for good measure, we should see a wide variety of species which may include dipper, grey wagtail and common sandpiper, ring ouzel and golden plover.  Also possible are redstart and spotted flycatcher.

This trip might be cancelled at short notice because of poor weather so anyone wishing to go needs to forward their contact details to Martin Kaye (as explained on the Trips Diary page).
