While driving to Berkhamstead on Sunday to drop my son off for a party the high street was closed after the Barclays bank building had collapsed (probably some thieves trying to dig their way into the vault!). A Cormorant flew over the hall where the party was being held and on the way home I noted 2 Little Egrets by a patch of water next to the canal. I will try to go next weekend for a closer inspection! Also noted were 4 Kestrels between Berko and Kings Langley.
Todays sightings were limited to 4 probably 5 Great-Spotted Woodpeckers chasing each other around in the trees at the junction of Rickmansworth Road and Gade Avenue along with 50 or so Siskins. A few RN Parakeets were around and after work I went and paid a proper visit to the new bird hide in the park. I sat there in the hope of seeing the Bramblings that were reported a couple of weeks ago. Alas there was no sign (maybe too late in the day?) with only 7 Chaffinches and 2 Coal Tits being noted. 2 more Coal Tits were near the car park.
