It must have been one of the best sessions of all time, as Carol give the pm class 15 out of 10, and she missed the Lesser Whitethroat and Yellowhammer; and David mentioned what a brilliant session it was, and I don't think he's done that before in 7 years of coming to the classes!
One of the reasons for the thumbs-up was the presence of the Little Owl, which has been noticeable for its absence during the last 7 years, but nearly everyone in the afternoon saw it, and some of the morning 'students'. Other big pluses were the pair of Peregrines and the male Redstart, but neither of these came close enough for a decent image to be captured. I hope all this wildlife will be present next time a class visits!
