Chanced upon a couple of good birds this afternoon on the 'Hargreaves' Walk. Firstly, upon scanning posts and fencelines, I found a male COMMON REDSTART at Miswell Farm in the field that contains the caravans, just beyond the metal gate. The bird was very flighty and swiftly moved left into the trees at which point it was lost from view. I failed to relocate it thereafter.

As I then made my way along the dry canal, I noticed a couple of large raptors, one of which was an OSPREY being harried by a Common Buzzard. The bird flew west, presumably skirting the north side of Wilstone and out of view behind the trees. I did hope that anybody standing on the bank would have seen it (Jon Nasir).
