Friday had Mr. Cheviot and i heading northwards out of Bellingham on our weekly walk. We covered 15.9km. with a total ascent of 351metres. Having left Bellingham we quickly picked up the Pennine Way and followed this for the rest of the outward journey. To the left Hareshaw Burn and on our right Highstead Hill and then Callerhues Crag.
No Adder sightings again but we had a few fleeting views of Common Lizards underfoot, mainly in and around the heather, until the guy pictured was spotted by Jeff just before he stood on the tread of the stile right next to the B6320. Obviously basking in the changeable conditions and grabbing what heat that was being given out by the sun when it penetrated the clouds.
