I want to add these 2 birds to my list this summer. I know there are Tree Pipits ad Wood Warblers around Roddlesworth and some areas of Bowland. I did try for Tree Pipit at Roddlesworth but no luck in 2011. Any other places thats good for them? I live in East Lancs and can travel up to 60 miles to see them if got a good chance even Yorkshire and Cumbria.

Foulshaw Moss exceelent for Tree Pippet.They are easier to see earlier on when they are singing and displaying.
The path from Stott Park Bobbin Mill to High and Low Dam was always reliable for Wood Warbler.Couldn't fail to hear or see them when they first return.[near Newby Bridge]

i got my Wood warbler in East Lancashire . where is foulshaw Moss?
Take the Barrow Road go past Gilpin Bridge pub Foulshaw Moss is on the left.
The road is single carriage each way.Look out for a blue parking sign which is before a very large lay by.Just before the lay by there is a rough track through a farm gate.Walk down the track till you come to a large viewing platform.IT is a Cumbria Wildlife Trust reserve.Lots of intersting birds here.

Not too far from Leighton Moss so worth a visit if nearby. Had I known about this site I would have stopped off 3 weeks ago when I went to see Eider at Walney
