A Visit to Wykeham

Green Woodpecker
 Small Heath
It was a lovely warm day yesterday but we were suprised how few butterflies there were about.  Only saw a few whites, Red Admiral and Small Heath.  We deceided to have a run out to the Wildlife Watchpoint at Wykeham but as we did not set off until well into the afternoon and stopping off lots on the way we didn't arrive until early evening.  There was nothing from the raptor viewpoint apart from Crossbills flying around but we did see what we were sure was a Goshawk as we were driving through the forest.  The road along by the Nursery produced excellent views of three young Green Woodpeckers and we had an excellent view of 1 Turtle Dove which flew just as we were about to get a photo.  Could hear it again but could not locate it.  It was a lovely evening and a lovely day.
