A juvenile MARSH HARRIER roosted overnight at Amwell on 4th/5th whilst WHINCHATS are occurring throughout the county with yet another at Batford and ones and twos at numerous sites including Heartwood Forest, Tyttenhanger GP and elsewhere. Up to 3 COMMON REDSTARTS at Hatfield Aerodrome and others in the east of the county. A GARGANEY was recently at Rye Meads RSPB.
Highlight at Tring Reservoirs has been a juvenile SPOTTED REDSHANK on Wilstone last Saturday and a flyover juvenile MONTAGU'S HARRIER on Tuesday (mostly in Bucks airspace).
Good numbers of Spotted Flycatchers have been recorded of late at a variety of sites around the county, with hirundine passage now in full swing.
