Thruscross Revisited Posted on Sunday, 21st April , 2013 by Stephen G. Hipperson We, (the Mrs. and I), had a stroll round Thruscross Reservoir yesterday – very pleasant it was too. It’s about 4 1/2 miles round and we took our lunch with us – great stuff, as it was a lovely sunny day. ———-Stephen——- Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailPinterestLike this:Like Loading... Related
It was a great day yesterday. We went to our local WWT and there were lots of warblers about, only just re-appearing. It was quite uplifting.
It was, managed to get my first Swallow of the year too. Plenty of Curlew calling. We had one call we didn’t recognise – obviously an alarm call – it turned out to be a Sparrowhawk – I think we were a little near it territory for it’s liking so we made a quick retreat.
I nearly went there myself yesterday…but chose the lead mines at nidderdale instead…but it is a great walk, especially when the weather is good…by the way, the signs says 4.5 miles but my satnav says 7….
Interesting you should point that out. The distance/time ratio seemed a little slow even for me – and we definitely enjoyed our cup of tea when we got home and put our feet up for a while! 😉
it is just an app I have on my phone, but it can save to google earth so you can map your walks..seems fairly accurate though…but many of these reservoir walk signs can be a bit misleading – especially thruscross as the route has changed a bit…anyway glad you enjoyed it, it is a superb walk.
It’s a bit dodgy in places and certainly not a place for high heeled shoes!
