SE5798 : Path up East Bank

near to Chop Gate, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Path up East Bank
Path up East Bank
I had missed this square on an earlier trip up Tripsdale and I had anticipated a tedious slog in. But on the way I disturbed a pair of curlews, their curved beaks obvious. They silently flew away unlike their neighbours the lapwings. There was the usual grouse, as you would expect on a grouse moor and a buzzard or some bird of prey was hovering nearby. Finally a pair of small nondescript birds teased with me along a wall by continually keeping ten metres or so away. All very frustrating as I couldn't get a decent shot so I had to settle for this ancient track onto the moor. Once well used as evidenced by the gulley formed by centuries of use. In the distance is Bilsdale mast.
