Derbyshire, Priestcliffe

I went to Derbyshire for a week and was amazed by the wildlife. I will list all the stuff we have spotted through the week:

Meadow pipit; Tree pipit; Skylark flying high in the air and calling; pied wagtail; white wagtail in garden; chaffinch; blue tit; great tit; long-tailed tit; marsh tit; coal tit; nuthatch; treecreeper; goldfinch;  bullfinch; greenfinch; linnet again feeding in our garden; redstart which is surprisingly new for me but still beautiful; wood warbler; willow warbler; chiffchaff; pied flycatcher which is new, saw a pair of them; great spotted woodpecker; dipper and one showing characteristics of cinclus; curlews calling; peregrine; sparrow hawk; hen harrier; kestrel; buzzard; grey wagtail; mallard; tufted duck; collared dove; wood pigeon; red grouse which is another new one; wren; song thrush; mistle thrush; 30 fieldfare which is surprisingly late!; wheatears; ring ouzel which is new; robin; and possible nightingale seen flying into hawthorn.

So great variety of birds and about three new ones that takes me to about 199 birds...

Regards Biff
