No, but I didn't really look hard, the Treepip and redstart were right by the road.

Nice shots Sid, I was in Co Durham on 26/04 for 5 days with visits to Cumbria and Northumberland. Highlights were Dotterel on two different fells the usual breeding waders on the moors and great views of Ring Ouzel.
