Thursday Spring 3 - Nutwood, Raywell

Yellowhammer (c) 2008 Maurice Gordon
More Goldcrests!

Whitethroat - taking off!
Record shot of Marsh Tit
Chiffchaff - nest-building
Small Tortoiseshell
Green-Veined White
Wood Anenome (pink variant)

Not a scarce bird, but one of the highlights today was a very confiding Goldcrest. There were 2 or 3 skulking Lesser Whitethroats, a couple of "Common" Whitethroats, a pair of Yellowhammers, Red-legged Partridges and Marsh Tits, but still no Garden Warblers yet. Quality rather than quantity today!
