A Pipit-catching rock

A Pipit-catching rock
There are some interesting sights up on The Roaches ridge in Staffordshire but a rock which tries to snap up flying Meadow Pipits must top the lot.

I think this is "Roaches Grit - Sandstone. Sedimentary Bedrock formed approximately 314 to 315 million years ago in the Carboniferous Period. Local environment previously dominated by rivers" according to the Geology of Britain viewer site. It appears to be on a boundary with Millstone Grit but I suspect that may be a little bit lower down the slope. It is interesting to see the wind erosion on the rocks up here and I will post another example soon

Ewald, Tractacus have particularly liked this photo
