Martinshaw Wood

Leicestershire and Rutland Ornithological Society are conducting a survey of some of Leicestershires' woodlands, so Pete Asher and I have adopted Martinshaw Woods Ratby/Groby section to monitor. (This woodland is in the north west of the County, and is dissected by the M1 motorway)
So, this morning,  having had a good breakfast at the Co-op, we set off to do our monthly visit, which, after four hours, turned out to be quite productive! Birds of note were 10 Chiffchaff and 15 Blackcaps, but sadly no Willow Warblers as yet.  Blue Tits and Robins were everywhere, and it was good to see at least two pair of Nuthatch, so here's hoping for another good visit next month!
