Thetford Forest: Raptors & Mammals


Warm(ish) weather but windy. Why not find somewhere sheltered? Thetford Forest fits that bill and that's where I headed this weekend. Not the usual busy places however. Just far from the maddening crowds and what a great time.
Birds seen included 2 Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers, Willow Tit, Goshawk and Hawfinch amongst the more common species. There were a good selection of mammals too.
 
Male Goshawk
Red Deer stags locking antlers
Roe Deer
Red Kites, six birds seen.
Common Buzzard
Hedgehog on a mission
Stoat on the prowl
Long-tailed Tit
