A previous post described a walk on St Bees Head. Recently hubby and I took a picnic and went on a leisurely walk in the same area. There was plenty to see – views, sea birds, other birds, rabbits, wild flowers, insects, and people enjoying the fine weather.
We did not take the rather difficult path down a gully into Fleswick Bay. The tide was high, so there was not much beach to explore. Instead we sat on an old wall admiring the wild flowers on the opposite side of the gully.
On the way back we noticed the route of a path, which had been washed away between wooden risers, frequently used in the construction of steps on paths locally.
The coastline (known as the Colourful coast) is managed by the National Trust and Cumbria County Council. There is also a nature reserve for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).
