Red-throated pipit take 2

It was a much brighter and drier day today, so with a bit of free time on my hands I decided to have another look at the stunning red-throated pipit on Ludworth Moor. For the first couple of hours it was frustatingly distant, but eventually it flew calling over the border and into Manchester (thus making it's way onto my North West list), before flying back into Derbyshire and settling again, much closer and now showing exceptionally well. A cracking bird! Also today, a whimbrel flew over calling and four wheatears.

NW: 354 (Red-throated pipit); Year: 208 (Whimbrel)
