The 3 HAWFINCHES were seen in flight from the playing field behind the church at 0730 (missed by 10 minutes), and again briefly up the road from the front of the church at 0800 (missed by being in the wrong place). Then finally, a better and longer sighting in the Oak tree further back in the garden across the road (found!!) at 0915, and again at 1015 - after which most people left.

Heard occasional 'crest calls in the Yew trees but nothing showed. Other highlights were the flock of 6 Bullfinches in the hedge on the far side of the playing field, Red Kite, Nuthatch, Green and Gt-spotted Woodpecker - and House Sparrows (rare in my part of Harpenden!) (Roger Payne)
