Today started at Stover Park to look for Goosander but there was none on show this morning . But I did get my first Eurasian Jay of the year . Also seen were quite a few Mandarin Duck and Gadwall .
On then to Yarner Wood but it was very quiet with the best birds being Marsh Tit and Eurasian Nuthatch . My last stop of the day was at the Haldon Forest and I managed to see a couple of Great Spotted Woodpecker , a Common Raven , 2 Common Crossbill and 3 Hawfinch that finally showed after a couple of hours wait .
