|Millstone Grit at Stanage Edge, Derbyshire.
2nd week in April and an opportunity to look for the increasingly rare Ring Ouzel. Blue sky, sunshine and barely a breeze surely a reasonable chance of spotting an early arrival. Unfortunately I’d overlooked the fact that the entire rock climbing community of Sheffield and Manchester had also descended upon Stanage Edge.
|Hidden away amongst the heather and moss a Red Grouse.|
|Unfortunately for the Grouse the red eyebrows are unmissable.|
|This one really needs to learn to be a bit more wary. On this occasion it survived sticking its head above the heather. Next time it might not be so lucky.|
|Who ewe looking at?|
