Lynford Arboretum

An early start saw me at Lynford Arboretum by 8.30 on Saturday morning, in search of Two-barred Crossbill and Hawfinch. There were lots of Common Crossbill in many flocks. Only problem I had was to crane my neck up a good 50 feet to the trees they were in to try and spot the Two-barred variety. Made more difficult with so many flighty birds. But luck was on my side as I spotted this female (below). The defining distinction is the two white stripes across the wings.
I did briefly see a Hawfinch on the ground in its usual area but was only there long enough for me to see through the binoculars. Still two lifers in a day is not a bad return for a 3am start and 270 miles.
