A lot going on at THERFIELD HEATH - SHRIKE'S back for a second winter and harriers

At Therfield Heath near Royston today, the GREAT GREY SHRIKE, SHORT-EARED OWL and 3 HEN HARRIERS were seen, including a second-year male - all visible from the Icknield Way

Three WAXWINGS appeared in the county today, being seen briefly in St Albans, whilst 2 LONG-EARED OWLS were discovered in thickets in the SW of the county.

  1. Hi Lee,
    Frustratingly I was at the Heath in the afternoon, primarily at the rugby club. I had half an eye out for short eared owls but had no luck. Where do you recommend as a good general viewing point for the heath? Paths from rugby club/sports centre, Car park on lane to Therfield or near tree line by Jubilee Wood?
