Langsett Area

Decided on a couple of brief hours up around the Langsett Resorvoir before I got stuck on doing the days jobs that needed doing. Arrived and parked in the Langsett Barns car, picking up on Garden Warbler, Chiffchaff and Willow Warbler as I headed off towards the dam wall picking up Common Sandpiper, Black headed Gull and Canada Goose as I walked over the dam. Out in the fields as I headed towards the woods Blackbird and Mistle Thrush were busy feeding and Lapwings overhead.

In Cliffe Wood Blue Tit were the first birds I picked up on but it wasn’t long before I heard Pied Flycatcher and with a bit of looking soon picked up on a fine male bird, calling away from a nearby branch. Looking around the wood Treecreepers were about to along with Wrens, Coal Tit and Great Tit, and lastly I heard the call the of a Redstart, always start looking for these birds a top of the tallest tree that’s where they are likely to be found, he took some finding out of sight most of the time, I had to look from the road side away from the wood to eventually see him, that finished the morning off nicely
