Malham, with all its limestone buildings, walls and rocky outcrops can look grey at the best of times but when the clouds are low and it’s drizzling with rain you can be forgiven for feeling a little grey yourself. But I had a great half-day there during last week – despite leaving my walking shoes at home and having to borrow a colleague’s pair which were a size too small for me. Going uphill was fine but coming downhill reminded me how much I needed to cut my toe nails! The peregrines didn’t leave the nest while I was there but folk from the RSPB tell me there’s been plenty of feeding activity recently. There have also been sightings of a green woodpecker and a yellow wagtail which are often seen at the tarn but not down by the cove.
A special viewpoint is set up by the RSPB and the National Park authority near the cove from Saturday to Wednesday, 10.30am – 4.30pm (weather/site condition permitting).
