Back in Rotherhithe, I managed to get a patch tick out of the day. There'd been a Green Woodpecker discovered in Russia Dock Woodland a couple of weeks back by Richard PJ, and I finally managed to lay my eyes on it today. It was a bit of a pain, always being one step ahead as were the five Redwings that were feeding in the leaf litter in the newly cleared area. And so it was time for an easier target, with the female Common Scoter still lingering in Southwark Park and trying to evade the pedalos on this sunny Bank Holiday afternoon.
