Saturday 5th January
I was out between 9 and 10.30 today. I had a brief visit on Thursday to Alders and thought I heard a Lesser Spotted woodpecker calling near the top of Lunsford Lane. I tried again this morning but no sign.
As time was short I drove around to Brooklands Lake car park. Walking around Brooklands there was a small flock of c10 Siskin in the Alders, a Sparrowhawk over as well as 7 Lapwing, a small flock of c4 Bullfinch, Goldcrest, Great Spotted Woodpecker and a Chiffchaff calling back in the car park.
