Crossbills at Howden Reservoir, Derbyshire

An afternoon trip over the Snake Pass via Glossop to the Hope Valley found me in Derbyshire looking for Parrot Crossbills today. On the way over the tops I saw Red Grouse and a Kestrel but what I was really looking for were recently sighted in a conifer plantation alongside the Howden Reservoir, north of the famous Derwent Reservoirs and Dams where the Dambusters' Lancaster Bombers aircraft famously tested their bouncing bombs during Word War II.
