It's been a long time coming but I've finally seen a Wood Warbler!
There were 2 singing birds in the Barbondale Woodland, however, only this bird was seen. It showed very well c100 yards from the gate at the entrance to the wood.
Other Sightings included:
5+ singing Redstart
2 Spotted Flycatcher
mutliple Grey Wagtail, Reed Bunting, Treecreeper, Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff (less of the latter)
Barbondale is a site I am hoping to visit much more often as it is one of the nicest place I have visited in Lancashire to birdwatch...I feel the 19oC Sun at 09.00 made a difference mind you
