New Forest 5/3/11

Had a day out with Dick Gilmore and Dan, Mike and Rob. First stop was the same viewpoint in the New Forest for Goshawks. The weather was murky but a male GOSHAWK was soon spotted perched high up in a conifer. A little later on another GOSHAWK was spotted circling not too fay away, but eventually it reached such a hieght it disappeared into the cloud. Also present were 2 Woodlarks, 12+ Hawfinches and a Snipe flew over.
Next stop was between Shattorford and Denny Wood and the Great Grey Shrike showed straight away. In the car park were a couple of Redpolls, Siskins, Goldcrests and Coal Tits.
Near Acres Down a Firecrest was with a roving Tit flock which held Marsh Tits.

In an area which looked great for Dartford Warblers, atleast 6 individuals were seen, which was amazing to see as i thought they had all frozen to death.

On the way home the Gosport RING-BILLED GULL was seen very briefly on the boating lake.
