Just got home from Derbyshire Moors where the purple heather is just starting to flower and there are sounds of sheep again.

I had forgotten how good a preparation walking is for singing!

Anyone in the area - go out there and enjoy. John

Thank you John for making me feel homesick! I did my 'growing up' in Macclesfield, and spent a lot of time walking the moors round Buxton, Ah, the memories!
Sheep heard here (Devon / North Cornwall border) too, and Dartmoor - at the festival last weekend, was splendid, bracing, but Oh, so beautiful. Isn't nature wonderful!

"there are sounds of sheep again" implies that a moment ago there were no such sounds. Why/how/why-not?

I'll be there in a month - too late to see the heather but it will be still be enjoyable.

Bald Eagle - Many areas of the UK were affected by Foot and Mouth Disease which is very contageous and entire flocks were slaughtered in certain areas to try to contain the disease. Therefore in many areas there were no sounds of sheep.

Hopefully the disease is reaching the end of its spread. Only time will tell.John

I think, Geordie Broon, that the name I chose as a nom de plume has given you the false impression that I am American. In fact, I live in Derbyshire, UK, where there has, so far as I'm aware, been no outbreak of F&M. Which accounted for my question.

As a regular walker in Derbyshire - mainly around the Kinder area - it is nice to see that people are getting back again. I, for one, was under the impression that walking had been effectively 'banned' and have not been out on the tops at all since February when the F&M outbreak started.

Good to know that the disiese did not reach our first national park - perhaps some of the meausures did work after all then! Are all the paths now open, John/Bald Eagle? Anyone know? I could do with a good 'bog trot' to get the old lungs back in fettle myself:-)

Cheers

DtG - Kinder plateau open from Edale side at least although a small section was closed for shooting on Friday!

Bald Eagle - Like DtG I had not been walking in Derbyshire since February so sheep sounds were being heard again by me after a long gap.

A Mudcat excursion onto Kinder! Cheers John

I believe most animals were recalled to barracks during the crisis...

Geordie, pass on my regards to Pat at the 3 Stags. Mention Leonard Cohen and Sister Josephine, she'll likely remember me. :-) And if you didn't go to the 3 Stags, shame on you! Hope to get up there some weekend soon anyway.

Graham.
