Paul's pleasant walk to Hooksway was fairly damp and misty. There were a surprising amount of horseflies with a great hunger for humans unfortunately. Common Spotted orchids in abundance and in different colours. Just over 6 miles in total, with about 600 ft of ascent. The Royal Oak looked after us very well. On the way home some of us were rewarded by the sight of a rook and a red kite in aerial combat, with no apparent winner or loser.
