Woodpeckers and other Birds at Forest Farm

I phoned Martin Bevan this morning and told him that I had a problem, I had pasties and chocolate cake which needed to be eaten. He said I will be down in half hour !!!

So 30 mins later we were on our way in Forest Farm to see the Little Bunting (yet again) and since it was raining hang around the hides to see what else turned up.

We then decided to go down to Lamby and Rhymney, neither of us could remember the last time we went there. Only bird of note seen was a Med Gull on Lamby Lake.

Below are a few record shots.
Great Spotted Woodpecker
