The shorter route I mentioned in the second of these four blog posts about a day out in September led us to the side of Derwentwater. I took a few photos near Keswick in the early afternoon and many more on the walk back to the car park after 4pm. Most of them are views of the lake. A few are of the scenery looking inland. One crag, which appears in my photos, has changed since then. A large piece of rock, described as being the size of a bungalow, broke free and smashed on the ground during the last week of November.
There were a few ducks swimming in a quiet part of the lake. One of them did not match any pictures in my bird books. I asked on Twitter and learned that it was a cross between a farm duck and a mallard.
