Happy Easter from Buxton

Happy Easter! What fantastic weather! The sun brought out lots of Buzzards, we watched them being harassed by Ravens and Lapwings, and eight together circling in a thermal above the rocks. Common Lizards and Green Hairstreaks and Peacock butterflies were all frequent, but too active for photographs. Unlike the pace eggs which we dyed with celandines and onion skins before rolling them down the hill, or these Canada Geese on a lonely moor!
