WWT – Brandon MarshSpecies seen 31.
A short visit and a completely different day from yesterday with rain, drizzle and mist. The agenda was to look for woodland birds in the hope of seeing the UK’s three Woodpeckers.
With this in mind my plan was to tour the woodland areas of the reserve. To begin with I took in the copse next to the old tip, then on to old hare covert and then through Horsetail Glade.
Birds of note, Blackcap, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Green Woodpecker, Goldcrest, Song Thrush, Redwing, Fieldfare, Buzzard, Kestrel, Wren, Robin, Tree Sparrow, Tree creeper, plus 100's of Wood Pigeon, all seen within the wooded areas.
For the third UK Woodpecker I will have to wait for another day?
