    Redstart and Pied Flycatcher 2-3 of each singing males.
    Ring Ouzel Pair
    Common Sandpiper displaying pair by foot bridge
    Lapwing and Curlew low numbers compared with former years the very dry conditions are probably not helping

    I have wanted to get a record shot of a pied flycatcher this season and so it was helpful members of this forum that put me onto good places. I dipped at Strid Wood, Bolton Abbey a couple of weeks ago, so thought I would try Barbondale.
    It is nice to report seeing a pair and obtaining my photo (several in fact although the quality wasn’t great.
    Other birds seen were
    Pied flycatcher
    red grouse
    pheasant
    mallard
    blue tit
    long tailed tit
    willow warbler
    blackcap
    wren
    robin
    blackbird
    mistle thrush
    nuthatch
    great spotted woodpecker
    chaffinch
