  • Stunning photos and clips Bob, you were certainly brave to hike that far over the Moors but with those beautiful Autumnal tones and lighting I don't blame you. Glad you found Chatsworth even though a tad later than you wanted !

  • Great photos and the views are beautiful Bob as are the Deer, well done on your long walk.

    Lot to learn

  • Thanks Hazel and Gaynor, it was a bit wet underfoot, especially in the woods as the moors were draining. Still, a nice day out and I never bore of the red deer.
  • Lovely set Bob....loving that sheep!! How much of a walk was it? (Assuming you didn't get lost take the scenic route?)

  • In reply to HAZY:

    Yes Hazel, really lovely captures of Reed Buntings , Dunnock, female Teal and Mallard.
    One question . Do you think I should offer some grit to my balcony birds ( Great- and Blue Tits, House Sparrows and Goldfinches? Or do they find enough of that in the city grounds, parks and playgrounds?

    I shouldn't bother Mart the only bird I've seen possibly taking grit on my patch are the Goldfinches and they get it off the paths..if it is grit they are after.

    Thanks, it was a 6 and half hour walk from the edge of Sheffield to Chatsworth, with it being the scenic route me getting lost :)

    The path on Big moor I sometimes take has a little 1 foot hop over a stream but the recent floods had washed the edges away and made it impassable. A little higher up I saw some red deer cross so I thought that's the place for me :) sadly I'm no deer. Even they stopped on their trek in to the middle of the moor to see if I fell in (well they may just have been keeping an eye on me but I'm sure they had their hooves crossed)
