I caught up on a bit of sleep and had a later start yesterday (Sunday), not the best of afternoons to go up to Wykeham Forest looking for Honey Buzzards but for want of anything better to do I thought I’d give it a go, checked out the Nursery fields first where I managed to find three Turtle Doves in one of the fields there, a few Tree Pipits and Garden Warblers were also in the general area. Went on to the Raptor Watchpoint and spent a couple of hours scanning but there had been no sightings of Honey Buzzards prior to me arriving and nothing more than a few common Buzzards and Kestrels were seen while I was there, dropped down into Troutsdale later for a different viewpoint and had a Goshawk go over but it was a no show day for the Honeys, a pair of Spotted Flycatchers were seen near the bridge at Hilla Green.
