Yes we have done two of the five sisters, and Beinn Bhuide. We were planning to head up there to do Sgurr an airgid but maybe next year now. There’s also some great lowland walking east of the campsite. It’s a great place for wild camping also, loads of room for plenty of vans. We spent a week there last year, five nights wilding, and two in the the campsite.

Out walking above our house up in the forestry land, when we heard strange birdsong then this henharrier repeatedly flew at us low and fast maybe 20 times obviously trying to scare us away flying just a few feet above our heads. Presume it had a nest nearby. It did the same low attack runs when we were coming back down the forest road a few hours later at the same area. Would not like to have been much smaller...... Wingspan of about 24-30"

2cvs post unsurprisingly instantly reminds me of Hyderbadi cuisine, and those seeking traditional cuisine that like making curries could do worse. Than to attempt making one , from scratch is time consuming but with a little care the results outstanding. Persian in origin , a lot of the time consuming dishes served at celebrations like weddings and coronations .

Unless you live in an area with a healthy Muslim population you may struggle to get some of the ingredients for example Kevra water, which is rose scented water , Indian terms used for other ingredients eg ...jeera which is cumin .

For those with less time or inclination ...Asda do a range of jar sauces hyderbadi being one. Formulated by the Aagrah chain of restaurants whose heritage is very much Kashmiri/Mogul cuisine and IMO is as authentic as you can get they will give you s better than average result.

Bills post is a happy accident really, given the celebration nature of some hyderbadi food , it is served this time of year during ramadan, at iftar breaking of the fast the more expensive recipes reserved for Eid think of an equivalent Indian Christmas dinner !

India off limits at the moment, but we can immerse ourselves in the culinary experience imagine the palaces filled with the food we cook ...grab the sun cream and enjoy ...a little history for those interested https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyderabadi_cuisine

Revisited one of our favourite walks today, from Crookhill Farm to Lockerbrook Farm in the Derwent Valley. A gentle walk from where you can see more of the Dark Peak high points than from almost anywhere else.

Barge1914 you have taken me back with these pics 30 years ago I took a group of young people to Lockerbrook farm woodland group. Wandering over the hills at 3 am in the morning demonstrating it wasn’t a good idea to deny me my sleep.lol. As it happened a meteor shower and the kids became fascinated. Ladybower park set off by derwenrwater down to stripes good mountain biking gentle warm up for the more challenging rides. A beautiful part of the world
