Stayed in native Hertfordshire today with an afternoon foray to Fox Covert in Therfield with Sharpy. We soon found our quarry in the form of a flock of 15+ Brambling. Unfortunately it was a lovely sunny Sunday afternoon meaning that every time we located the flock they were promptly flushed by the many ramblers and their many noisy kids and dogs. Now as much as I applaud parents who get their children away from the X-box to enjoy the countryside, there needs to be some sort of legislation stating that they can't do this anywhere/anytime that I'm out birding. Selfish? Me? I don't know what you mean.
On the way back we briefly stopped off at the Green Gate at Deadmans Hill.
No birds of any real note here, but a small group of Fallow Deer were nice to see.
