At last this morning after 7 years of birding West Hartford I finally added my longest overdue tick, House Sparrow. Whilst watching the new flash pool in the farmer's field east of the substation a pair churped overhead before landing in the hedgerow opposite. They stayed for about five minutes collecting nest material before flying back towards the Northburn estate.
At last I could die a happy birder!
Nothing much else around this morning, no waders on the pools but at least 3 Grasshopper Warbler and a Sedge Warbler reeling away.
