Aversley Wood

Didn't fancy going far today so we decided to visit a site I'd been meaning to for a while - Aversley Wood, near Sawtry. I thought we might see Woodcock there, and the mythical Willow Tit (believed to be extinct in Cambridgeshire).

Well, we might have seen a Woodcock - something big got up off the ground as we approached. Inconclusive views. Definitely no Willow Tits. No surprises, but plenty of Marsh Tits.

For Darren, the highlight was probably seeing me fall on my arse on the walk back down the very muddy, steep hill...
