17 Feb - Happy Clappers

Freezing fog & zero vis winter at home this am
Flat calm & a bright warm spring day a few hours later

W##k nr Fulforth Dene area, Witton Gilbert: Green Woodpecker yaffling, singing Skylark way up in a perfect clear sky, pair of Bullfinch watched taking buds from a garden Cherry Plum for at least an hour.

Later, after w##k, managed The Five in a new time of 37 mins; although Little owl was unseen.3M singing & clapping, 1F calling from likely nest copse. A male flew off to sing from different tree after a Short came in to land close to him (the Seo must have gone to roost as it didnt move for 30mins {17:30-18:00})
