A true bike-based twitch! 124 species in total

Not a lot of time today, so I was very focused, and cycled 65km (round trip) to a site “somewhere in the county”, where I was fortunate enough to see three Goshawks, two of them displaying and power-diving. The third was a very brown, presumably 1st calendar year bird. Also at the site were at least two singing Woodlarks, many Buzzards and a fly-over Grey Heron. There and back inside 3.5 hours!
