Regular visitors will have noticed a decrease in posts to the HEMEL NATURE
blog - this is because I have been living & working out of the area, & due to the job my time out
& about with nature in Hemel is limited. I am working on a new blog to come soon & hope that the work that has gone into HEMEL NATURE will prove useful & interesting to those still visiting it.

PEREGRINE at Roost but Otherwise Quiet

The skies were quite quiet at work at my office in Corner Hall today, just a couple of PIED WAGTAILS & LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS about.
At B&Q a JAY was moving about the area & 2 MUTE SWANS swam by two anglers pole fishing. I saw them catch 3 fish & miss 3 in as many minutes from about a foot below the surface using maggots & worms, from across the canal these looked like small BREAM.
Nearby the PEREGRINE was at its roost near 'The Magic Roundabout' when I walked home at 9.50pm, visible in the glow of the full moon.
