At least 70 WAXWINGS still present in Hatfield
I watched the birds in this area between 11.30am and 1pm. I didn't attempt to count them but there were far more than 30 by the time I left. I would guess that there were 60 at least. The Pink Rowans are behind the flats in Great Heath. I used to live in one of those flats many, many years ago. They occasionally fed on the berries even while someone was working on a car, directly underneath, and having a row with someone else through the window of one of the flats. Skittish though (per Steve Chilton). There were still at least 20 in Hertford today and 9 in Bishop's Stortford.
