I've been laid low with flu since New Year, so not managed any real birding yet in 2011. I did, though, make it up to Monument Drive in Ashridge for an hour early afternoon today.
There was no sign of David's redpoll flock, just one calling fly-over bird, however I did locate the resident male LESSER SPOTTED WOODPECKER. It was feeding in the tops of trees 50m along the signed Public Footpatch that runs south from Monument Drive, about two thirds of the way from the main road to the Monument. First ever year I've seen LSW before Green 'pecker!!
No sign of any Waxwings anywhere in Berkhamsted/Northchurch.
Cheers & Good birding in 2011,
