Green Woodpecker Southill

I was out and about this morning and ended up in Southill Village on route to Broom, I stopped by the playing fields at the south end of the Village and had some great views of the local Green Woodpecker.

I returned later with Jim P to the same spot and in the space of 1/2 -3/4 of an hour we had Song Thrush, Mistle Thrush, Blackbird, Fieldfare & Redwing all in the playing fields at the same time as well as the Green Woodpecker, Grey Wagtail, and a small flock of finches containing Gold, Green, Siskin & Redpoll? We also had close fly by views of Red Kite and Buzzard . All in all a very pleasant and fruitful visit.

Happy New Year everyone, good birding to all in 2017.
