Birks Fell
The smallest Nuttall in the Yorkshire Dales, this is the highest point on the Old Cote Moor seperating Wharfedale to the east and Littondale to the west. It was only elevated to mountain status recently and as such was added to the list of Hewitts and Nuttalls.

The ridge of Old Cote Moor is a wide, long grouse moor of heather and peat hags. Not the most beautiful of places, but good views across to the east of the fells across Wharfedale, and west to Darnbrook Fell, Plover Hill and Pen-y-ghent.

As mentioned this is the smallest Dales mountain that achieves Nuttall status, but it is the second smallest of the Dales 2000 footers, being twelve inches higher than Calf Top on Middleton Fell.
