I have made a few visits to the Goyt Valley in the Peak District just recently. There are some really stunning birds there at this time of year. I managed to locate a pair of Common Redstart quite a few Spotted Flycatchers, Pied Flycatchers, Dippers and Grey Wagtails along the river and Curlews calling in the distance and Short Eared Owls. I've also heard Cuckoos, but am yet to see one.
