                                                   Pure delight

Sometimes you just get lucky.............With snow & wind forecast we decided to retreat to some local woodland for a good walk and hopefully see a few early migrants. Whilst the migrants were very difficult to find the above male Lesser Spotted Woodpecker gave us amazing views right above us. I have not seen this species as well as this for five years. 

Our only other bird of note was a immature Goshawk that flew over ahead of us.
