I’m really late with the posting today as I spent rather longer in Skipton this afternoon than I planned, but let’s pass swiftly over that.

The weather last night was atrocious a lot of rain falling that was not really forecast so the river this morning was just off spate conditions much to the puzzlement of one member who came up on my promise of good conditions.  Its been a dry day today so the level has fallen back and provided that we get NO overnight rain (I can’t promise) then conditions tomorrow should be good.

As I came back up the lane from Horton this evening I was looking out for the resident geese and whilst I did not spot them did see a swan cruising on the river just below Newhouses adjacent to the field with the recently planted trees.  I guess that this is the youngster who keeps trying to move on to the Tarn.
