Coach Road 'Peckers

There was a grand total of 6 G S 'Peckers at Coach Road today, along with the usual woodland species, including 3 Song Thrushes, Chiffchaffs and Nuthatches. It seems more than likely that the increasing number of Great Spots have helped to drive out the Lesser Spots from their traditional site, as there have been no sightings for over a year now.

Well done for your efforts to try find the 'lessers' Mike. I guess you are right in your thinking. GSW are pretty dominant.
Never give up hope !!

The potential positive is that if the LSW's have been driven out, they're likely to have just been displaced to another site. The question is where?!
