Derwent and Howden Reservoirs

I went for a lovely walk in the Upper Derwent Valley on Saturday with a group of friends.  This time we started in Fairholmes which is close to the Derwent Dam.  We walked along the side of the reservoir until we reached Howden Dam, and then retraced our steps.  As usual I took lots of photo's along the way. 

We were so very pleased to see some Goldcrests flying about.  They are similar to the Firecrest and also the smallest European bird.  I was very lucky to get a photo of one of them.

UFO Stitch Along

I belong to a forum that has a weekly UFO Stitch Along.  This group really helps me to keep focused on my stitching.  So, every Monday you will find me busy stitching, and on Tuesday it's "Show Time".  I have promised to show my "Time and Season Sampler".  So watch this space for an update.

Happy Stitching

Enjoyed reading of your walk and seeing the photos specially the snowdrops, Oh to be able to see them growing like that, I get a thrill each year when I get 4 or 5 of these beautiful flowers in my garden.

I know these reservoirs quite well.

I have to ask do you live on the Derbyshire side of Sheffield. We come from Bradway & Norton.
