While many people have been grousing about the snow which has lingered for many weeks in the Peak District, last Sunday we were up on Derwent Edge watching the grouse make their way about in the snow! (Red Grouse to be precise)
There are estimated to be over 5,000 breading pairs of Red Grouse in the Peak District, so it is not unusual see see them on our moorland walks. The males can be instantly recognised by their distinctive red ‘eyebrows’.
It really was a great day to be out walking, with brilliant sunshine, fantastic views, but temperatures well below freezing.
Why not try our ‘Dramatic Derwent’ guided walk onto Derwent Edge yourself?
