New Forest again (16/03/2014)
I then made my way over to Pig Bush where I had a single Dartford Warbler but no sign of any Lesser Spots.
Next up was the Tawny Owl site but no sign of the owl or any Lesser Spots. Then onto Eyeworth Pond where immediately picked up a pair of Mandarins. Last stop was Nomansland where spent some time scanning for Goshawk but no luck. However, a pair of Woodlarks here, a couple of distant Ravens and best of all a male Lesser Spotted Woodpecker which flew over our heads. I have chase and eventually pinned the bird down briefly in some trees near a boggy ditch.
