A wet day at Chatsworth

After the last two days of fine but cold weather we woke to rain this morning. The rain persisted until after 3 p.m. but we had a brighter late afternoon and were able to take a walk in Chatsworth Park.
Button had the right idea during the rain!

Lots of deer were gathered together in one herd; we estimated 100 or so individuals. On our way back to the caravan site we saw a Sparrowhawk take a small bird. The light was very poor but I took a few photos anyway.

For lunch today we walked into Baslow (in the rain) and went to Il Lupo, a very pleasant Italian restaurant.
