Shipley Glen
Very much alive with activity with two pairs of GSW chasing and disputing territory, Nuthatch calling from various points and pairs of birds at almost every turn, including Treecreeper, three pairs of Jay, Mistle Thrush and a pair of copulating Moorhen. A Lesser Spotted Woodpecker was seen earlier in the week at the copice between the Coach Road and the Glen.
