Liplje - short circuit around village

Better views of S.T. Treecreeper showing distinct brownish tinge to lower belly and vent. Both birds came together in possible territory dispute.
Surprised how many Stonechats have turned up possibly over night as I was only aware of one when I did the same circuit last night. Female was very nondescript and paler than western birds and appeared to be paired with a male.
Great to see Black Woodpeckers mating high in a big tree.
Goshawk seen briefly, was harassed by 15 Hooded Crow, appeared slightly bigger than crows and broad wings noted. 
Wood Larks mostly elusive but one seen in sustained aerial song flight.
Cirl Bunting no longer singing near home, this bird some half a kilometer away.
