I repayed a visit to Hamsterley Forest to try and get some more pics of Crossbills since yesterdays were nothing to shout about and again there were loads about. Better light today too, the wind was increasing all morning. I saw 2 male Goshawks (or same one twice), and thought one perched in a tree not far away, but cyclists came along path and disturbed it. Good sighting though.
The Crossbills appeared to be collecting nesting material, and 1 came down to a muddy pool to drink from too
End of Crossbill purge - for now.
