So, special trip made, and right on cue a pair were found. Took a bit of searching, but when found, I had a good amount of time spent with them. The male was in song quite a lot of the time by the nest site, and the female was busy gathering nesting material. Such good looking birds. So glad they make the trip from West Africa each year.
The male Pied Flycatcher.
The slightly less colourful female, but a lovely looking bird all the same.
Along the river bank of the River Goyt there were a couple of pairs of Common Sandpipers. Not usually the most confiding bird, this pair were unaware of my presence as they gathered nesting material.
