March 2017

Posted on 31 March, 2017 in Summaries

Quite an active month, which started with more Bohemian Waxwing in Southgate, this time 15 flying over; must be a waxwing winter!

Mid-month I went back to Tyttenhanger GPs and this time saw a site speciality Tree Sparrow near the farm; a veritable rarity these days but still hanging around at certain locations.

Later the same week I visited another new location, Sherrardspark Wood Nature Reserve, in an attempt to see Lesser Spotted Woodpecker. I was unsuccessful but enjoyed visiting a lovely old growth forest with some rolling vistas; a couple of Bullfinch made up for the lack of lesser spot.

I went back to Sherrardspark the next week, again dipping on lesser spot and firecrest, but saw some nice woodlad species, including two Sparrowhawk, while enjoying the early spring conditions.
