Birds in Buda

So I took my group of UK birders up into the woods in Buda. Our objective was to add a few woodland species to the fine lowland and wetland list we had got on Friday and Saturday. It was a glorious morning soon the woods were flooded with walkers and joggers. But before the masses arrived we saw a Black Woodpecker (we were to encounter another later). Middle Spotted and Syrian Woodpeckers also obliged, as well as Hawfinches and a Short-toed Treecreeper. Some butterflies were out, too, and I also spotted, but failed to catch, a large Green Lizard.
