A pair of Bullfinches by the farm at Branshill. The Hen had a beakful of nesting material and as I watched seemed to gesture to the Cock, bowing her head in a deliberate way and making a faint buzzing noise as if to say 'Look what ive got, come and help me make a nest'. They then flew off together.
This Green Woodpecker played hide and seek as it crept up an Ash tree and never gave me clear views. Eventually it launched itself off the trunk and bounded across the moor to another tall tree where it gave good, if distant, views.

An immaculate Cock Reed Bunting posed beautifully at the top of a small Willow. It was constantly warning calling and I suspect its mate was on the nest close by.
