Out to Dovestone with Annie this morning. Sunny enough that we didn't take rain trousers. Lots of people walking round the reservoir, which is now quite low. No signs of the peregrines at the rock face. Blustery wind, so I was sorry not to see them wheeling around against the white sky. Then a rain shower blew in, soaking our legs. The wind was gusty enough to cause problems for the sailing yachts which were racing around a circuit marked by red buoys. As we walked back past the main car park I thought I saw a peregrine over the rocks but it was hard to be certain at that distance. Pleasantly warm, so our wet legs didn't bother us.
