28th December 2013 - Peak District

After Christmas, we headed up to Manchester to see my family.  Obviously we kept an eye on the alerts and this lead to us heading out across the Peak District to Broomhead Reservoir near Sheffield to see some Two-barred Crossbill.  As with attempts before, we just missed them but did get to hear them call this time which was quite exciting.  We weren't too disappointed though as we saw loads of Red Grouse on the way, something we weren't expecting at all!

Red Grouse

A few Mistle Thrush were around with Redwing and Fieldfare and I spotted a Raven as we headed back to Manchester.
