Slipware dish, bird mark - Rookes Pottery, Hartington, Derbyshire

I think this is British, but I can't read the name of the pottery above the bird, and I'm not coming up with anything by searching studio pottery bird marks. Anyone recognise it?

Assuming the second word is "Pottery", the bird, and the shape of the letters, how about something like "Rookes Pottery"?

I couldn't find a picture of their mark (the pottery is now closed), but after looking at examples of their work online I'm going with Rookes Pottery (David & Catherine Rooke, Hartington, Derbyshire) . Many thanks.  Happy
