Canal towpath at Great Wilne, South derbyshire. I visited this place some years ago as it is a good place to see migrants. I was shocked to find a good part of the habitat next to the hedge destroyed by a track made for diggers. All was not lost as I soon located a few migrants further back in the hedges. An immaculate Lesser Whitethroat and Common Whitethroats, a Redstart flitted about the hedge, ever restless. Bullfinches and many other small birds could be briefly glimpsed. I hope they dont destroy the rest of this valuable habitat.
