With the A120 awash, the footpaths streams and any agricultural land a quagmire, I have not managed too many forays out recently. A trip to Broxbourne Woods for the reported hawfinches was non successful despite an hour of searching and listening and so I have resorted to photos of the moon! Good moon last night (27th Feb) as I listened for owls. 1 tawny and 2 little owls heard.
I received a report from a village resident of a rough legged buzzard moving through Little Hadham air space, so need to be vigilant in buzzard watching over the next few days. Reported to have been seen heading towards Sawbridgeworth and with the aerodrome around Trimm's Green already holding a peregrine and merlin recently it is possible that it could be around Matham's Wood near Green Tye.
Now booked 28th March for a dawn chorus walk. All welcome, meeting at L.H. Village Hall at 5.45 am and finishing around 9ish. Please let me know if you intend on coming so we don't go without you. Note: clocks go forward this day!!
