I also visited Barbondale yesterday (6th) from 10.50 to 12.35

2 Pied wagtails (FF), 2 grey wagtails, 1 common sandpiper, 2 meadow pipits - all on stream
Male cuckoo flying around a lot, perching on low branches and diving into bracken. At one point this set up agitated behaviour from a female wheatear which I otherwise would not have seen.
3 spotted flycatchers on different territories. Didn't find any pied flycatchers.
2 great spotted woodpeckers.
4 redstarts - one male on twig by stream.
2 wrens, 2 mistle thrush, 1 song thrush, 2 blackbirds, 1 chiffchaff, 5 willow warblers, 1 linnet by road, 1 blue tit, 4 crows, 2 ravens, 1 buzzard, 3 woodpigeons, 1 robin
