With a couple of days to ourselves Trace and myself headed over to the lovely Derbyshire Dales,using Bakewell as our base.Bird highlights were few and far between and included a few roadside Common Buzzards,with the best sightings being a single Dipper and a couple of Grey Wagtail along the River Wye in Bakewell itself.Interestingly in the river there was less fish than normal,but i still managed to see a couple of the stunning Grayling,what a cracking fish they are with their multi-coloured dorsal fin.But it was the lovely scenery which stole the show for us both and this is the main reason we keep returning to this lovely area and again this time made for a lovely break from the mundane,weekly routine of working,a nice couple of days.
