Back in Herts (for a second time in the past week) (2nd April)
I went to pick up our dog after we got back from Germany and took the opportunity to walk him through Chipperfield Woods and back over the farmland to Kings Langley. A typically quiet scene with only a Siskin of note in the woodland. The farmland was only marginally more productive 2 Red Kites, 2 Buzzards, 1 male Sparrowhawk, 8 Meadow Pipits and a Lapwing flying north along the A41. A couple singing Skylarks were also in a few fields and another Siskin flew over the A road.
