Other news!

A fantastic find by Martyn H at lower Gorple yesterday. A cracking Water Pipit in the overflow area and lower down in the drain. Thinks its about 10 years since the last one, and in the same place. Well done Martyn. The bird is still there this morning. JW.
It's very flighty and soon flushes so approach with caution!
Hope someone gets some photo's

Also today from Derby Delph a pair of Stonechats but no sign of yesterday's Twite when I called this morning. Andy K had 8 Twite there yesterday.

still showing well at the far corner of the reservoir between 3-30 & 4-30 this afternoon, it has now been present for 3 days (I flushed it first on Thursday but did not get any details)

a stealthy approach and silence is needed for this one but it does show well
