brickworks,birds and bacon butties

up at 0530 but didnt leave the house till 10! called for g and set off at 1030.first stop the butty shop at the end of union street south, after browsing the extensive menu g opted for bacon and black with brown sauce and my good self a bacon sausage and mushroom.god it was fucking fantastic.
past the pump room then the minster towards matalan for the long steep hike up old bank then onwards and upwards over beacon hill,with the hard part out of the way we made our way down dark lane aka the magna via towards badger lane,then to hipperholme brickworks,willow warblers and chiffchaffs were singing along with the odd blackcap.
after a good look around the brickworks we headed down sunny vale towards brookfoot then onto the gravel pits,which had quite a few swallows but little else of note.
a quick pint in the barge and barrel then onto salterhebble,14 swallows over the fields before the bridge and 3 blackcaps along the towpath.
