No rain so an easy five or six biked miles this morning. Plenty of avian wildlife at Elton Reservoir.
Cygnets doing okay and feeders are up nearby – Goldfinch already spotted – Jays too near farm fields.
Mrs C easily does the five miles plus now and gets up most hills.

Fine but very cool early-on and a quick canal/bike-route ride to spot The Flying Scotsman at Bury South. We were just in time, the engine was approaching the level-crossing at Baron Street as we arrived.
It looks great, as ever. A few minutes later Witherslack Hall steamed up.
This too looking good. Two great steam locomotives that’ll be working a local heritage line (E.L.R.) for a few days.
Bike maintenance later.

From Radcliffe Nature Trail (near asda’s) to Ringley Road (Wood Street ‘Station’) to Giants Seat and Clifton Marina. Around the lake then to Prestolee Road and along M/C Canal to Meccano Bridge then along canal back to Radcliffe. About 13 miles in all. Very warm.
