North Staffordshire Moorlands

As anyone who knows the Moors well, will tell you, it has a completely different climate to anywhere else, after seeing a report that a Snow Bunting had been seen again at the Mermaid Pool Morridge, we decided to investigate only to find it blowing a gail and you could see the rain in the distance a mile off, with a few other ardent Birders joining the search, there were two found along the track going away from the Pool and with patience and withstanding the down pour, as there were clear sky's coming in behind the rain clouds, the best of the shots are below, got only by lying behind a big boulder, only after standing up did I realise just how wet I had got,saturated from the waist down and was lucky to be let back in the car for the ride home, but I think it was well worth it and the damp is soon forgotten with a change of clothes and a hot cup of tea.
