Cassiobury Park - 6.4.11

As I got out of my car this morning a Willow Warbler was singing near the yard and then i got a text from Mick Frosdick saying that the LS Woodpecker was drumming again. Around 8am I was watching and listening to it drumming away in the meadow. The Mandarin pair were still on the river and another Willow Warbler was singing by the cricket square mid morning. Numerous Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps were around the park and around 3pm a Red Kite flew low over the croquet lawns before being chased off by 2 Carrion Crows. The warm weather brought out a few buterflies with 2 Small Whites a Peacock and my first Orange-Tip of the year.
