Thornley Woodlands, Rowlands Gill

Whilst in the North East we popped across to Thornley, Rowlands Gill a couple of miles away from where I grew up. During a short stay in the busy hide we spotted Chaffinch, Bullfinch, Great Tit, Long Tailed Tit, Blue Tit, Yellowhammer & greedy Grey Squirrel. Everything dived for cover a millisecond before a Sparrowhawk flew overhead. Walking through the woodland we spotted a couple of Nuthatch & what we think was a Chiffchaff. Wood Anemone (Anemone nemorosa) and Wood Sorrell (Oxalis acetosella) in bloom, an abundance of Birch Polypore and an Oak Polypore near the Woodland Centre.
