Kings Langley Common (5th February)
Unfortunately I wasn't able to go to see the Bitterns at Marsworth Reservoir so instead I went outside with my brother and indulged in a snow ball fight and counted the flyover thrushes. I remained on the Kings Langley Common for much of the morning, between c.9 and 11am. In total I had 3 flocks of totalling 40+ Redwing including three flocks of 17, 7 and 16 as well as several individuals, mostly going in a south and east direction. A total of 149+ Fieldfare including 8 flocks mainly going south and west also flew over as well as several uncounted individuals. Also of note was a flock of 8 Long-tailed Tits and 2 Skylarks going east.
