Moorland Yomp

I was 'yomping' across Caton and Claughton Moor today with some colleagues from Natural England and the RSPB. As always I was on the look out for some good birds, and more importantly additions to my list for the year list challenge with colleagues across the country. I managed to add three today in the form of four Red Grouse, a pair of displaying Ravens and a calling Siskin. It was quiet 'on the tops' as you might expect, but the views across to the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales were stupendous! Well worth putting up with the aching limbs that I now have! Oh, and we had a couple of sightings of Peregrine and a Stoat in ermine too.
