F,C,F,E,A,B in D Flat Major

The question on the walk yesterday Sunday was which was the wetter day.  Who got wettest those on the challenge walks either the Three Shires or the Irregulars Black Brook or the 4 walkers on Bob's Slaidburn March?  Think we have now decided to call Bob 'BOG Kelly'
Thanks to Peter for stepping in to lead the walk and to Frank and Tony for sampling the terrain.  For Tony it was his first experience of the Trough of Bowland, hope he has not been put off.

The Bogs of the Bogs of Bogland!! Sunday 29th March 2015.
 
Our scheduled leader having thrown a sickie, muggins took over the reins.  Given a dire forecast, an early start 60 miles from home after the  clocks went forward this morning, and a couple of events yesterday that  some possible attendees had done, I thought I'd be a party of one, but 3 other mugs joined me for a day of squelching through some of  Lancashire's finest bogs, Steve, Tony Ford and Frank Tongue. At first  Frank was talking about taking the Irregulars round this route some  time, but the horrible marsh we had to negotiate in the valley above  Croasdale House changed his mind for him. Mercifully sheltered from the  worst of the gale in the morning, as we  went over Burn Fell to Dunsop  Head, we paid for it on the return leg when we found ourselves in the  hill's rain shadow and the strong winds came shooting up the valley.  Worse than the stuff dropping from the sky was the stuff underfoot and  we all slithered muchly. The second part of the walk followed the Red  Rose 100 route and left Frank and me praying it will have dried a bit by the time we do the marshals walk in early May. If not, flippers should  be provided - organisers please note. At one point we had to wade  through the field section along the river bank after Slaidburn, and  Hodder Bank Fell will be testing for those who are there at night.  Surprisingly, given South Manchester's record, we finished with the same number as we had at the beginning, none having been sacrificed to the  the hungry quagmire gods.
Amongst all this bog there were several plus points, we didn't get lost,(thanks to Peter and Frank for the navigation) some of the 100 route was recced and we saw a Kingfisher, a dipper, many curlews, oyster catchers and other moorland birds.
