Wainstalls area

 I didn't find much about today in the usual places up there - but it was a very pleasant afternoon to be out in the sunshine and enjoying the views.

This Red Grouse was particularly obliging - never have the right lens with me though -

A single Ring Ouzel was seen earlier (PL) though I failed to re-locate it.
4 Wheatears in different locations along with a few Lapwings, Curlew, Skylark, Linnets and Meadow Pipits. 
Swallows are obviously hanging back until the weather warms up a bit but sounds like it might get colder later on this week ! We'll see.

Cracking shot of the grouse

Good enough for a Whisky bottle, that photo Dave.
Great weather for walking.

Swallows were just below in the valley at saltonstall yesterday and several over mount tabor yesterday evening. Stunning grouse shot.
