Mike and I visited this lovely little valley last weekend. It is a favourite location for those birders in the know and is a great place to meet other birders.It provides some excellent opportunities to photograph the resident pied flycatchers and redstarts plus many other visiting and resident birds.It was a bright day but with still a cold wind from the north.On arrival we were greeted by the call of a cuckoo plus a singing whinchat at the top of a pathside tree.A pair of cuckoos flew past and there were numbers of singing redstarts and pied flycatchers.We spent a number of interesting hours at this delightful spot and I managed some reasonable images particularly of the pied flycatchers which came close.Shown below are the best of the pied fly shots interspersed with redstarts and the singing whinchat.I look forward to returning to this lovely valley and it's delightful birds at a future date. Thanks for looking in.
