I will happily come along and do my share of driving if welcome. Not knowing where the best sites are at the best time of year I'll go with others recommendations but yes please count me in.

I heard a story on radio Newcastle this morning where a hen harrier has been shot near Bowes and a £1000 reward put up for information about who did it. This makes my blood boil - I wonder if there is any connection with grouse moors?

Belive or not the story does have a happy ending as a retired vet has nursed the bird back to health.

What do you mean "it followed you to work" Bob.

I once had a dog follow me home when I was a kid, but my mam wouldn't let me keep it. Imagine if I said I had an Eagle sitting at the front door.

Great pics by the way and those talons are something else.

Regards

Its a long story but i will try to explain.
I set of from Marsden last Monday morning and eventually got to my place of work in Indonesia on Friday morning,about five days to the hour from leaving home
The journey involved three flights one train a couple of boat trips and various taxis etc,shot these on one of the boat legs of the hike just off Changi boat jetty in Singapore.
Pleased you enjoyed viewing them,massive bird but still not as big as the white tailed beasts of Mull.

Cheers

Bob

Another 75 days travelling Bob and you would have arrived back home with the bird.

My son Tom and I decided to head off into the Pennine hills yesterday as he wanted to look for fossils. We decided to have a look around the lead mine spoil heaps. Didn't find many fossils but plenty other stuff such as lead ore, flourspar, quartz, etc, so Tom was over the moon with that.

We ended up at Nenthead and for those who made the trip previously with Mick R we parked in the same carp park next to the Mining Centre. Although I promised to leave my bins at home and concentrate on the job in hand I couldn't help noticing how close we got to red grouse - 20m. Not 100% certain but I think there was at least one black grouse there as well.

The other thing I noticed was the grouse call which I hadn't heard before - what an eerie sound.
