You had a good trip round today Dave with some decent sp.
Its very hard work at the moment.

Probably the same two Ravens came out of the mist & murk at Fly Flatts in the morning Dave.
There were at least 9 Red Grouse between the wind turbines and the reservoir as well.

Yes, I noticed the rockfall after it had happened. Quite scary, imagining being there at the moment of collapse. There's an old record of a rare plant from that quarry, and I've searched for it more than once (Annual Knawell). Never found it.
