The sightline for the waterfall going down to Blacka Dyke worked well this morning. This follows a suggestion that SWT's chain saw operators take some time off from felling that we don't like and help visitors see one of Blacka's more spectacular views; this involved the removal of a fallen tree and some others. To see it at its best you have to be prepared to brave some poor weather and muddy paths. But there's a chance that heavy spring rain followed by bright sunshine could bring it to life even better.
Snow on the highest parts and a stiff north west wind meant stags kept to the shelter of the north woods for most of the day.
