Winter walk at Therfield Heath

Last sunday led a RSPB walk up at Therfield Heath a very enjoyable day started well with Siskins and a Linnet in with the finch flock feeding around the bushes by the car park. Then walking up to the Icknield Way we had great views of Skylarks singing all around us and a good views of a kestrel hunting overhead. Near the top of the heath we had distance views of a Buzzard and a kestrel showed well on the wires.

Walking down the Icknield Way we had nice views of a few Browns Hares and a few of us had a Flyby Sparrowhawk where we saw Red-legged Partridge and Grey Partridge feeding around the field edges before stopping at the field near greys Farm where we came across a group of over 300 Golden Plovers then we headed back where we had a super view of a Green Woopecker feeding a good morning walk.

The many Golden Plovers
