Spring Migrants at last

Managed to get out for a quick walk this morning to the Goyt Valley and picked up the two target species. Both Pied Flycatchers and Common Redstarts showed in poor light and a little distant when the camera came out. However  I was very happy to see a pair of each showing well at times.

The evening before I stopped at the other end of the valley while returning from a day out and managed a single Short Eared Owl .

Great stuff Dave. I need to get to Goyt this week myself to see both. I was only thinking tonight about the SEOs at that end but thought better of it as it started to rain a little.

Hi Dave 3 great birds found and photographed especially the Owl in flight.

Great shot of the owl, seems like it's giving you quite the look!
