On The Moors!!
Woke early to a beautiful day, had a quick whizz round with the hoover so as not to feel guilty about the house work not getting done and by 8am was on the way up to the Moors, not been since between Christmas and the New Year and it was great to enjoy not just the weather but the peace and quiet, a joy to be able to concentrate on my own photo's without having to worry about passengers not being at the right angle for their shots, could not resist a play around with the Herons at the heronry at Macclesfield Forrest on the way by, I counted 12 just on my side of the Heronry viewing area knowing there is more round the other side not in view until they fly in and out and caught two Great Crested Grebes displaying to each other, on the moors there were good numbers of Grouse, Golden Plover and Lapwing and on the way back saw two kestrel's together on the wires, first time I have seen two together before but only one stayed to have it's photo taken. Was back for breakfast by 9.30 am as had to be back for 10am for my visitor.
