Vaguely OT, but people - inc. Chris Packham - have noticed there's such a thing as Leica Hunting on Twitter, a company platform for people who like to shoot wildlife and then get a nice photo afterwards. It's not going over well.

Yeah, grim. I’ll have to have words with Iolo.

43 miles including inadvertent trip up the Dewent valley instead of cutting off at alfreton and having to drive through the cruising zone that is central matlock then stuck in queue on a38 on way back as white van man and two cars had a fight so to speak.
Fortunately they're right next to an industrial archaeology valley will old mills and waterfalls so not going just for 18 waxwings
