Kings Langley and Cassiobury Park (6st March)

  • cloud 3/3 shade 1/3
  • wind 1/3
  • temp. 0-1/3

I left late for school today and whilst walking past the KL Common 2 Redwing flew over in a westerly direction, a rather unusual direction given the time of year.  As I was walking down Vicarage Lane I was first alerted to a small flock of panicking Starlings circling in a condensed flock over The Glebe, a rather unusual occurrence to happen on its own accord.  However, when I looked skywards I was thrilled to see the explanation was a PEREGRINE heading north over the Lane with strong/rhythmic wing beats, pointed wings and an unmistakable jizz.  This represents a local patch tick!!


Nothing out of the ordinary with 3 Great Spotted Woodpeckers of note (2 of which were only heard), 1 calling Green Woodpecker, several calling Redwing as they flew overhead, 1 Pied Wagtail and a Ring-necked Parakeet calling near the Cha Cha Cha Cafe.


The usual gulls were present including 28 Black-headed Gulls, 1 Common Gull and 5 Pied Wagtails on the playing field and concrete.


On my from school at 17:10pm through Kings Langley Woods came across 2 Great Spotted Woodpeckers, 1 singing Goldcrest and a calling Green Woodpecker.
