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.

LIVE Sightings

Now that I've been using the 'LIVE Sightings' feed (on the right) for a while & have a feel for it, & taking into consideration that Spring is on its way along with the rush of migrants it brings, I will from now on only be posting live sightings regarded as very good records, first migrants & birds that I think people would like to make an effort to see. I will no longer post live sightings regarding birds such as Buzzard, Red Kite, Grey Wagtail or Bullfinch for example, or other birds that are regular in Hemel, unless there is something extraordinary about the record. Hopefully, instead I will be posting lots of live sightings of great spring migrants & rarities.

Good Luck when birding this spring - VELORAPTOR
