Redstart. Padley Gorge. Visited this place with the intention hopefully to see Wood Warbler and though I saw what looked like one flitting about the canopy (a pale bellied bird with a shorter, wider tail) my attention was taken by the Redstarts which posed well on the moss and lichen-covered boughs. I also heard Cuckoo and saw Tree Pipit, Winchat and of course the Pied Flycatchers which due to the unseasonable cold wind and hail flew down regularly to the ground in search of food.
