A pair of Red grouse flying over Birch tor today. Also Soussan's valley [below Bennets cross], resounded to the song of willow warblers, but sadly, this was my first spring visit to this area without sight or sound of a Cuckoo, or a Whinchat for that matter though the latter is easily overlooked. I would be intertested to hear if anyone else has seen either of these two species hereabouts this year.
