Langsett Res Area

My first port of call was onto the Broadstones Res Heath, which was on my way to Langsett. In the short space of time I was here managed to see Stonechat, Meadow Pipits and a Common Whitethroat.

On then to Langsett Res, parking in the barns car park. Plenty of action in the car park with numerous Blackbirds, Song Thrush, Mistle Thrush, Chaffinch, Blue Tit, Collard Doves, Woodpigeons and Blackcaps

Venturing down to the dam wall, Pied Wagtails, Oystercatchers and three Common Sandpipers were seen and in one of the nearby trees a single Treecreeper. I came back up to the car park and wondered along the pathway until I could find a place to over look the reservoir and the nearby moor. Greylag Geese, Great crested Grebe and Black headed Gulls were on the water. Looking out over the moors I manged to pick up a Common Buzzard which had settled in a tree, a Cuckoo was calling and I also managed to find a Red Grouse and Curlew. Behind me a Great Spotted Woodpecker was contact calling and a Coal Tit was seen.

I headed back towards the car park but decided looking over a nearby ploughed field, here I saw Woodpigeon, Stock Dove, Pied Wagtail, Mistle Thrush, Song Thrush and the surprise of the night a pair of Little Ringed Plovers.

Venturing further a field, friend had joined me at this point, Goldfinch, Linnet, Siskin, Chiffchaff and Willow Warbers but no Pied Flycatchers or Redstarts.
