Thanks for info regarding the "red" bird; presumably escaped from someone's home along the south coast or the island itself. As for the pipit; is it a Meadow ? Adult or possible juvenile ? Thanks, Dave.
Mono, Barbondale was excellent. Splendid views of pied flys, redstarts, and a pair of cuckoos together in a single hawthorn shrub. Possible spotted fly, but not clear enough view to be certain. Even without the birds, it was a stunning short walk. Very many thanks, Dave.
Thanks, one of the main reasons for choosing the KL area was its' proximity to LM. Have visited LM several times over the past 30 years, but not since about 2014. Thank you though. Assistance much appreciated, Dave.
Really looking for sites within 30 miles or so of Kirkby Lonsdale area in Cumbria, Yorkshire or North Lancashire; looking for Flycatchers in particular and areas of moorland where I could sit and look for moorland specialities; not up to walking miles any more !!!! Any help greatly appreciated...
