Yarner Wood

A visit late morning/early afternoon was excellent today. Two drake Mandarins were on the car park pond. A female Lesser Spotted Woodpecker and a singing Wood Warbler together gave me a rather nice binocular-full! Two other Wood Warblers were found, together with good views of Redstart, Pied  & Spotted Flycatchers and Tree Pipit. A Tawny Owl was heard calling and a Lesser Redpoll was in song nearby. A male Grey Wagtail was collecting food on the pond.
