Willow Warblers are back on Territory at Clough Head

I was at Grane Info Centre yesterday (Sunday)and there were at least 3 pairs of Willow Warblers singing and I think they may have been back on their breeding territory, also there was a Peacock flying past the Clough Head Information Centre. Also yesterday, Mike Valentine was near to High Ormerods on Calf Hey and manage to get these 3 fabulous photos of "Cladonias - Lichen species....... plus whilst going around Calf Hey also managed to get these fungi, flora and moss photos below. (Click over photos to enlarge)
