A Walk in the Woods

Out with Andy today and with nothing much reported from the coast we decided to do Bolton Abbey Woods, it was a nice pleasant walk around as usual and as well as the more common woodland species several Pied Flycatchers and a Wood Warbler showed very well on the first side of the river with Spotted Flycatcher, Cuckoo, Redstart and Garden Warbler being seen on the opposite side on the way back, also Dipper, Goosander and Common Sandpiper showed well on the river which was in full flow. We returned to the York area in the afternoon and had a little stroll around Skipwith Common but it seemed most stuff was keeping its head down in the windy conditions so we decided to check out Thorganby, there was plenty of water but apart from loads of Tufted Ducks it was fairly quiet however we then received some info regarding three Black Necked Grebes at North Duffield Carrs so we shot round and ended the day there although again there was not much with them.
