Common Crossbill - Chatsworth

Although I see crossbills most days when I am around the moor they are usually birds flying over and only advertising their presence by the distinctive chipping call. I came across a small party of 15 birds today in the Larches by the second weir at Chatsworth and managed to get some record shots in very poor light. With there being both Parrot and Two-barred Crossbills in the country there is a chance of finding one of these rarities in the area so any crossbills are worth scrutinising if you get the chance. 
Just as I was leaving Ken called with news of a Great Grey Shrike in Farley Moor, which I'll update above.
