Freezing Conditions predominate

Wilstone Reservoir has seen at least 3 different KITTIWAKES roosting on 13-15 March, with a male and female MARSH HARRIER over on 24th (SR; WC) - the odd Northern Wheatear also, 2 different LITTLE GULLS and a flyover BLACK-TAILED GODWIT today (26th) (RH). Startop's End has attracted a WATER and SCANDINAVIAN ROCK PIPIT during 19-23 March (Lucy Flower et al).

A BLACK-NECKED GREBE was at Tyttenhanger Fishing Lake on at least 24 March (Steve Blake), whilst at least 5 had now arrived at Hilfield Park Reservoir.

Up to 3 JACK SNIPES remained in the county until at least 15 March, with 2 at Tewinbury NR and another at Lemsford Springs NR (per Drew Lyness), with the ringtail HEN HARRIER still at Therfield Heath on 18th (Matt Mellor).

Barry Reed had yet another immature CASPIAN GULL at Amwell NR this morning (26th)
