Two spotted flycatchers in area 29 at lunchtime, plus three willow warblers in trees just outside the best viewing area, and a green woodpecker and juvenile great spotted woodpecker on the same tree trunk, at the same time! Never seen that before: I don't think either was happy with the other's presence. Still hoping to see a kingfisher. Any sign of the redstart lately?

High Debbie.
No Redstart, at least 1 Kingfisher over in area 25 & 26. Today however it was a little elusive. If I see you tomorrow and the birds been showing I will take you to see it.
