Common Crossbills at RSPB Dove Stone Feb 2018 (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
My wife and I had a short walk up the side of Yeoman Hey reservoir after parking the car in the layby at Bin Green (the actual car park is closed and full of building plant). Walking down the lane to Yeoman Hey Dam, we saw three male Crossbills in the top of a bare Larch, leisurely feeding. They were well lit in (rare) sunlight and continued feeding for 20 minutes after we first saw them.
We had read reports of Crossbills being seen around here, but never expected to see any.. I wonder, would they be resident in the woodland?
