21st May again, a forgotten adjunct!!

Following our return to Sheffield we sped up to the Redmiires/Ringinglow Moor area to have a last look for Montagu's Harrier, but again with no success! A local detour of slightly greater length than expected, took us into nearby Derbyshire and produced two Grey Partridge at the roadside and, shortly afterwards , a site at which a pair of Ring Ousel were feeding young! Great views were had of both adults flying with food to a group of gritstone blocks within which the nest was obviously located.

A fine end to a good day , or was that after the pint of Stones beer to offset the hot conditions of our endeavours!!
