Peak District, 20 - 22 April 2012
A long weekend of walking in the northern Peak District and the odd bird en-route. A male Ring Ouzel on Curbar Edge, loads of Red Grouse and displaying Curlew. Ravens and Common Buzzards a plenty. Swallows and Willow Warblers have arrived in good numbers up there in sharp contrast to Norfolk at the moment. Grey Wagtail, a couple of Northern Wheatears and a singing Lesser Whitethroat also seen. Followed up with 2 Red Kites by the A1 near Peterborough on the drive home.
