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.

Whilst working at my office in Corner Hall today...

4 BLUE TITS passed through between the offices heading W.
A COAL TIT was calling.
A Female SPARROWHAWK circled towards Two Waters Road.
Some HOUSE SPARROWS were about near the NE corner of the offices near Corner Hall road - even though these birds seem resident at the cottages here I very rarely see them from the office complex. Nearby, 9+ CARRION CROWS were on top of, & flying around the old Kodak Tower, now Image apartments.
A PIED WAGTAIL was occasionallu about.
At 2.10pm a RED KITE circled low over the rooftops then gradally moved N low over the town centre.
A BROWN RAT was out in the open nearby, along the canal near B&Q.
At 3.10pm a COMMON GULL flew over.
At 4.00pm 2 LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS drifted over & one called loudly in typical 'seaside style'.
