The weather on the New Forest was really good, and arriving at a site (not Acres Down) a Woodlark was already in song overhead and above the conifers were 3 GOSHAWKS in display flight. They were a bit distant but they are truely amazing and i enjoyed watching them for over an hour. Also an incredible 16+ Hawfinches seen whilst sitting watching the Goshawks and a Raven was also displaying.
Decided to head back into West Sussex and make the most of the warm weather. At Burton Mill Pond the Tawny Owl was still by the Sweet Chestnut trees unconcerned of my presence.

On the way home a male Lesser Spotted Woodpecker showed well drumming and calling next to a Great Spotted Woodpecker.
