Visit to Barden

Sunday morning saw me out again with Richard Greenwood (visit his website here visiting the Strid Woods from the Barden Bridge end of the estate.  We walked along the river, through the woods a way, and then returned to the bridge where dippers are resident.

Whilst we were mainly looking to sit and watch the dippers by the river, a wander into the woods added pied flycatcher and spotted flycatcher most notably.  Unfortunately the redstarts that had been there a couple of weeks ago seemed to be absent.

  1. The redstarts are there but with foliage increasing they can be tricky to find 🙂
