From the bus stop in Kings Langley, a total of 56+ Redwing flew over.
1 Grey Heron was noted from the bus near the Cassiobury estate. In the park, 2 Great Spotted Woodpeckers were heard, one had begun drumming whilst the other was heard "peeping" near the center of the park, followed by a yaffling Green Woodpecker. In addition, 1 Common Gull flew over, it seems to me that recently, the underwings of Common and Black-headed Gulls appear much darker against the pale background of the snow and sky in comparison to earlier in the winter, an unusual optical illusion. Within the half hour 149+ Fieldfare flew east (mostly over the gardens in the Cassiobury estate) followed by a small flurry of light snow that only lasted for about 10 minutes. Also of note were 19+ Redwing and 1 calling Nuthatch.
