Seen yesterday at the feeding station next to the main car were Greenfinch, Goldfinch, Great tit, Nuthatch and Lesser redpoll. Elsewhere around Dove Stone there have been recent sightings of Oystercatcher, Common sandpiper, Reed bunting, Buzzard, Swallow, Meadow pippit, Grey wagtail and Mistle thrush.
Nice pic. But how is it there is no news posted about the peregrines? I can't understand why there are no updates this year.
That is a lovely photograph there Rachel. Aren't they such colourful pretty birds. For me it's going to be Barn Owls in Norfolk this June. I just need the Owl gods on my side - and the weather.
Good luck - let us know how you get on ! There are a few Dippers around at Dove Stone too.
Wonderful spot. I spent a week in the peaks trying, without success, to photograph Dippers a couple of years ago. The Grey Wagtails made up for it though.
Sounds like a good mix there Rachel. I'm just off to find out where Dove Stone is now.
