On top of Mam TorStoat

With the sun shining, we decided to take a stroll up to Hollins Cross and along to Mam Tor – we were beaten by the wind on our last attempt! There wasn’t much of an attempt really, just the realisation that in the strong cold wind it wasn’t going to be fun so we went to the caves instead where the wind couldn’t get us. Beautiful views at the top, and walking down we saw a stoat and a rabbit. The rabbit was stuck to the spot even though we were quite close, a bit of googling later and I learnt that stoats can do a magic dance that hypnotises rabbits so they can eat them, so it seems we may have interrupted something and deprived the stoat of his tea!
