We have seen two flocks of CURLEWS recently, one this morning (about 12) at Long Line/Limb Valley, and another very much larger flock at Bolsterstone just over a week ago. When living in Derbyshire the most we saw together were 3 or 4.
A few weeks ago I saw a KINGFISHER dart in and out the Porter Brook, close to Sheffield city centre. This was only the second kingfisher I have seen in my life! Unfortunately, Steve was looking in the wrong direction on both occasions.
