    D.T. be on the public car park at Clapham for 18.00 next Tuesday; we'll be back to GMT and Bowland are heading up Ingleburger.
    I was a bit of an oddball until I was abducted by aliens; but I'm perfectly OK now!

    So why did you need a head torch if you had a full moon to light the way?

    Last night was the Bowland Bats first 'torcher of the season.
    It was a 'feral' one (outwith the bounds of Bowland)
    3 of us formed the 'slow group' leaving Clapham at 18.00.
    Another 6, including 3 ladies, formed the 'fast group' at 18.45.
    A beautiful starey night-scape on the summit of Ingleburger.
    The fast group were maybe 300 yards from gaining the top of the Swinetail,
    as we descended past them.
    Being the old man of the group, I was very cautious descending the steps
    below Little Ingleborough and the fast folk had all caught me by Bar Pot
    but I managed to tag on the back of them, down through the gardens and
    into Clapham. Various 'devices' made it 14 km / 8.75 miles.

    Last night saw 11 Bowland Bats on a circuit from Ribblehead, taking in the Blea Moor sidings, Whernside summit and descending via Bruntscar to cross the fields to Ivescar Farm (where the fast group reeled-in the early starters), Gunnerfleet and Ribblehead.
    The maelstrom along the summit ridge had us linking arms to stay upright - general consensus was that gusts must have reached 80 m.p.h.
    The Station was closed, so we settled for the Hill Inn.
    An invigorating way to celebrate one's 68th birthday.

    Stunning cloud inversion last night from the Mam Tor - Lose Hill ridge, looking down into Castleton and the Hope Valley.
