Early morning at West Hartford and it was still like winter. You know it is bad when the highlight of your two hours are 3 Canada Geese.
A complete contrast by the time I left with the sunshine and birds in full song. No sign of the Woodcock along the disused road off Crowhall Lane but at least two Chiffchaff were singing away near the electricity substation at Brockwell Scrubland.
I also got excellent views of three Great Spotted Woodpeckers chasing each other near the WH roundabout.
