Upper Heyden on 24th June 2008

My wife and I celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary this day with a drive in the country and a good lunch. As my wife is not really a birder, I thought that I had better keep the birding a bit low-key. We headed up through Derbyshire into West Yorkshire and ended up at Holmfirth. En route we stopped at Upper Heyden to admire the view. There were several Meadow Pipits in the area, and we were also captivated by the antics of a Weasel. Whilst trying to find out whether this was a Stoat or a Weasel, I came across this helpful piece of information - a Weasel is weasely recognised, whereas a Stoat is stoatally different".
