Only a quick visit to the patch this pm, but it proved to be very profitable, as I found a female Lesser Spotted Woodpecker. The 96th species this year. I watched it picking off items of food from an old apple tree for some minutes. Apart from a few GULLS and A GREY HERON this was just about the only bird of note.

Marvellous sighting, and long-lasting too, rather than the brief glimpse that they normally give.
Or so they say... I've never been lucky :-(
