Other than that, all the commoner woodland birds are showing well, including Nuthatches, Jays, Treecreepers and Green/ Great spotted woodpeckers. Overhead there's plenty of Buzzards to admire as they put on their spring aerial displays.
My eldest son George calculated we cycled a 10 mile route from Shadoxhurst to trails running from Faggs Wood. Taking regular stops for surveying and listening, we've found just 2 lesser spotted Woodpeckers so far this spring. No Crossbills on this ride either.
