We moved a bit further up and took a path going to the right and after about five minutes we heard a Lesser spotted woodpecker calling just before landed in a tree right in front of us it was flighty but we got some amazing views at times, we also saw some more Great tits and Blue tits and a flock of lapwing in the distance. also 2 reed bunting.

On the way back  to the train station we got good views of a Nuthatch a bit further down the road we had amazing views of a male Sparrowhawk we got up to about of 5 foot, at the train station we had a nice veiw of a peregrine, so after an amazing day we decided to head home

When we arrived at home we were greeted by the local male Blackcaps and blue tits
