Friday, January 15th - a cold, frosty start to the day, but boundless blue skies and sunshine!
A brisk walk round the reservoir; bit muddy - should have gone home for
my wellies first!
Any early frost and ice was gone - so plenty of clear water for the ducks to have an energetic swim!
It is, surprisingly, a reservoir on high ground; so a stiff breeze can catch you on the more open sections. But from the side by the dam - wonderful views looking southwest towards the Pennines, Woodhead Pass, Emley Moor and the Peak District in the far distance.
