The best spot

Decided to pay a visit to Moore NR this morning for the first proper day of spring, blue skies and the sun is shinning. Star attraction here at the moment is the Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, fortunately i heard one calling and drumming so knew at least one was in the area and after a patient wait was rewarded with brilliant views for some 30 minutes. This has to be one of the, if not the best site in the UK for LSW. It proves patience pays dividends for this enigmatic little bird.

Also on the reserve were at least 4 Chiffchaffs in full song, 2 Sand Martins over and a female Brambling with the Yellowhammer flock.
