In complete contrast to yesterday, this mornings walk was enjoyed under blue skies and warm sunshine. There wasn’t anything of particular note, the most interesting birds being a couple of Egyptian Geese, grazing with the Greylags – the first I’ve seen in the Park since the end of the summer. We did encounter a nice ‘mixed flock’ in the Great Wood, which included four Tit species, Treecreeper, Nuthatch & Goldcrest. A nearby Great Spotted Woodpecker looked absolutely gorgeous, illuminated by the dappled sunlight.  In our two hour round trip we managed to rack up a total of 54 species.
