A bit of a charge around the periphery of London starting at Staines Reservoir where the American Horned Lark was showing really well along the bank of the South Basin. Despite the bird having been present on and off for a couple of months, there was still a good crowd assembled there.
A Black-necked Grebe was seen distantly bobbing away in the south-east corner of the south basin. There were also a few Goldeneye on both sides of the causeway.
I then headed up into Hertfordshire to the small village of Bramfield that as it's centrepiece is the fine 13th century St Andrews Church. It was here where the Hawfinch had been a regular sighting. After a short wait, a group of four flew into trees beyond the church. They weren't close in by any means, but the views were just fine.
