Drove round the mosses this afternoon in preposterously warm sun.
Plenty of Small Tortoiseshells and Red Admirals about, but it was fairly quiet birdwise.
Tried to put the temptations of the east coast out of my mind, but it was hard when confronted with empty field after empty field.

A few hundred Pink Feet out on Carr Moss.
And that was about it.....the M62 is calling me.....
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies.....
