Better red than dead

A very pleasant jolly out onto the moors the other day with the Mrs and the old man, specifically to Bransdale - a especially stunning and relatively peaceful part of the North York Moors National Park.

It's been a long time since I was last there - perhaps ten years or more - and I don't remember it being so beautiful and picturesque; a perfect setting to enjoy the many resident, characterful and impressively suited and booted Red Grouse.

P.s. - really enjoyed this tasty piece of satire from Peter (Alfrey), relating the fantasy of awards and their sponsors to the reality of his local conservation apocalypse ....
