Coombes Valley RSPB

With such beautiful weather,and not much doing rarity wise,i decided to visit Coombes Valley on the Derbyshire/Staffordshire border......its 19 years since i last visited.It is a very beautiful reserve,a steep sided valley,with mature oaks and a stream running through the middle.I have to say i was a little disappointed with the lack of birds.....i remember Wood Warblers,Redstarts and Pied Flycatchers were quite abundant.No Wood Warblers were breeding on the site this year,i saw one Redstart,a pair of Pied Flycatchers were occupying a nest box...also saw a Spotted Flycatcher very briefly.
