Drat !!

Bum! It wasn't there when I checked the GL east pits just before 1.30. Indeed, a landscape contractor in high vis jacket had reduced number of birds using southernmost pit.

However, at 2.00pm, I did re-find Jim Gurney's female Lesser Spotted Woodpecker at Swiss Garden. It was unobtrusive but showing really well for quite some minutes on outer branches of various trees alongside the southern length of the circular path no more than 20ft up. Smashing! I texted Mr Plumb and told JG when I met him at Octagon Farm about 3ish. 2 Green Sands and a Grey Wagtail were highlist here (MJP)
