Breck break!

Despite an unpromising weather forecast, Norman, Brian & I headed south to see if we could mop up the odds and ends we missed last time! Suffice it to say: we did! A nice flock of Tree Sparrows was extremely welcome: the first I've seen for years! Nearby, a flock of twelve Herons flew over - quite a sight!

We moved to Mayday where a longish walk produced a pair of displaying Woodlark which were joined at one point by a third bird. Spick's Lodge added Crossbill to the tally, as well as distant views of Lesser Spotted Woodpecker (a pair!) Finally, the drive home gave us spectacular views of two Buzzards mobbing a Goshawk! Splendid stuff!
