I had a bit of a walk round Longshaw and Padley Gorge earlier today – I was probably there a bit late in the day and didn’t see any of the woodland specialities there such as pied flycatcher and redstart, but there were plenty of nuthatches around, a fair few willow warblers, chiffchaffs and swallows, plus some rather tame, photogenic siskins and a pair of lesser redpoll at the feeding station. A nice walk in gorgeous weather.
