Moor Rainbow

A gloomy day last Sunday the one spot of brightness we encountered on our travels was on Wheeldale Road between Pickering and Whitby, North York Moors. I jumped out the car and grabbed these shots but not much more.

Only a couple of additions to our year list, Red Grouse including a fantastic male with bright red wattles and a Pintail at Scaling Dam.

I have added some distant Goosanders at Castle Howard Lake from two weeks ago, about six of these birds were present.

Fabulous shots of the sheep on the moorland Mike with a great new header.
No snow on that Whitby road then, but plenty of time yet for it particularly there.

Cheers Roy. No snow on the moor road but still pockets in the hollows that get no sun and on the forest road.
This was left from early December when we had six weeks of snow, without seeing a blade of grass!
