It's only Rock and Roller but I like it
It's for my good friend Gary Prescott aka the Biking Birder who is currently visiting all the RSPB reserves in Cumbria as part of his round Britain cycle in an attempt to see 300 'green' species in a year. So in answer the the question anywhere close(ish) to an RSPB reserve.

If he is visiting Haweswater he may stand a decent chance at Naddle Wood at the Dam End, as you enter the reserve sounds like a great thing to do hope the weather holds for him.

Cheers

Thanks to everyone who answered Phil's request for information. Haweswater is the next RSPB reserve i'll be visiting so here's hoping. I can't believe i'm struggling for wood warbler. The Midland sites I knew from years ago don't have the species these days. thanks again.

Right next question . .

Ring ouzles anyone?

Try Riggindale again at Haweswater for Ring Ouzles, if you go at the weekend the wardens will be at the viewpoint, alternatively they are based at Naddle Farm so they should be able to let you know what areas have been productive this year.

Best of luck

Thanks for that. :t: I hope to be meeting the wardens there and will email them to say i am on my way. 3 target birds there; golden eagle (poor thing), wood warbler and ring ouzel.
I remember it too me hours to see the lone male goldie last time. Fabulous location though with golden-ringed dragonflies to see whilst waiting.

Are there any reliable sites for Wood Warbler in Cumbria at this time of year?

Cheers Phil

Phil,

There are Wood Warblers in the Oak Woods in the SW corner of Derwentwater. Follow the path west along the southern edge of the lake then head north along the west side of the lake where you will enter Oak Woodland. I had 3 singing there at noon about 3 weeks ago.

Best wishes, Gareth
