A mid morning wander up Ford Hill, along Hoecroft Lane to Millennium Wood and back. Very few birds on show, with a little owl, single lesser black backed gull and numerous fieldfares being noteworthy. Great and blue tits were singing, along with robins and dunnocks. A party of 9 long tailed tits were recorded in the hedgerow by the River Ash bridge at The Ford and several yellowhammers were in the hedges adjacent to the cricket field.
Photos show hazel catkins, an interesting sky reflected in the pond on the polo field, water in Millennium Wood pond and a view looking north west across The Smithy, with Albury End and the church in the distance.
