After putting it off i decided to make the trip to Hampshire for the Sparrow/Junco double. Working all week in Redditch it wasn't so bad making the journey south, almost a lie in! Arriving at the Spanish Sparrow site in Calshot just before 8am and already somebody searching. It wasn't long before it was picked up showing well and constantly singing, loudly. Quite smart for a Sparrow i guess.
From there it was a short journey through the New Forrest to Beaulieu for the Dark-eyed Junco. Again, it showed well to the assembled crowd of 3.
