Shipley Glen,
On a mild, still day, there were four drumming Great Spotted Woodpeckers at a variety of locations and a Dipper around the nest site on the beck.  Close by, 25 Redwing fed in the ploughed field, 15 Goldfinch found food in the hedgerows along with a pair of Bullfinch.  A Song Thrush was in full voice, Jays, Great Tits, Mistle Thrush and Nuthatch were prominent.
