Birds at Yarner Wood, Dartmoor. 31st May 2018

Male Great Spotted Woodpecker

Spent a few hours at Yarner Wood on Thursday although the weather was good on the moor it was very dull & misty down in the valleys.

However the Pied Flycatchers were actively feeding young and the Woodpeckers looked ready to fledge at any moment.

We also found a nesting Redstart, high up in a tree and not in a nestbox.

Great place, just needed a bit more light!

Never happy!
