The first gust of warmth from the continent today was enough to spend my last day of unemployment in a West Sussex Forest.
Entering the wood (where I've had LSW before) just before midday I instantly heard a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker calling. I quickly got onto the bird and enjoyed the birds open wing display and also lots of drumming, which surprisingly are displays I hadn't seen/heard before.
However the Woodpecker soon departed. I did manage some photos which will be added tomorrow.
A Brimstone was also seen today.
