Failed Again in the Brecks

Dad, Mum and I all went to the Brecks yesterday, to try and get Goshwak (again), Lesser Spotted Woodpecker and Tree Sparrow. We failed on the 2 latter, but got better views of the former than on Tuesday. We went to the same place, and as it was a lot sunnier than Tuesday, we got about 5 Goshawks all up high in the air displaying, but they were a bit distant. But we did get a male fly low over our heads displaying...

We then went to lynford again, as a Hawfinch was reported there in the morning. No sign of him/her, and not really anything else apart from the usual Nuthatches and common passerines.

We then went to Ampton, to try and find the local flock of Tree Sparrow. We went here on Tuesday, but got no luck, and we didn't get them yesterday either. We didn't know where they are seen in the village, but after contacting a friend, I think I know where they are now for future visits. We did get at 1st Winter Yellow-legged Gull sitting in a field on its own, which was a good find.

Happy Birding!
