LESSER SPOT puts on a good show
Arriving at 6:30, before any dog walkers, lots of woodpecker activity and after walking through the woods for nearly an hour eventually managed to locate a LESSER SPOTTED WOODPECKER near the pond. A cracking red-capped male which I was able to watch through my 'scope drumming on a dead branch for 5 mins. A pair of Mandarins were on the pond when I arrived and the usual Nuthatches, Coal tits etc in the woods (Dave Bilcock).
