I came off at Jct 22 tonight and saw a small falcon sitting on a telegraph pole as I passed down the A672 near Derby Delph - I drove down and turned round as I thought there was a possibility of a Hobby sitting it out in the pouring rain - but it was just a sogging wet kestrel looking very sorry for itself. I felt sorry for it too!
I thought 'all that heavy rain, maybe some terns at Ringstone' so I headed up the back route from Booth Wood to find the road blocked by the police at the top - perhaps a landslide - as a digger was there and looked to be clearing up after a flood (?) - so I gave Ringstone up as a bad job!
