Morning at the Arboretum
John & I visited Lynford Arboretum on saturday morning between 9.10 to 1pm, where we saw Barry B and a group of people watching several Crossbills in conifers including 2 immatures and a smart red male. Walking to the entrance hut area over looking several larch trees. We waited here til 1pm, seeing up to 12 Crossbill feeding on larch cones but sadly no Two-barred. 2 Spotted Flycatchers were seen perched at the top of the larch trees. Also a Mistle Thrush flew over heard, rattling as it went.
