October Moor, above Eskdale, North Yorkshire.

2016-10-03-13-26-41Signs of Red Grouse on Sleights Moor. Thirteen flew off, cackling as they went – I stood and watched . . . so no picture.

2016-10-03-13-35-12They went that way.

2016-10-03-13-56-13New shooting butt; all ready for soft-handed fund managers from the great cities, clutching hip flasks and shotguns.

2016-10-03-13-33-14The burial mound has watched them come and go.

2016-10-03-14-20-57And the older standing stone.

2016-10-03-13-46-53I hope her suffering was brief.

2016-10-03-13-34-05I’m away now. Bye!
