Shipley Glen
On a very pleasant afternoon, a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker was seen with a flock of approximately 10 Long-tailed Tits and five or six Godcrests, a classic textbook situation. There was 'drumming' from a pair of Great Spotted Woodpeckers, and Nuthatch, Jay, Mistle Thrush, Redwing and Bullfinch were all in the area.
