Hi Des, Have you, in your recent bird recording, seen any sign of hedge laying along the Effingham Road boundary being started?

Thank you Elaine - too kind!

Better late than never; sorry to arrive late but so glad to join you. Enjoyed seeing some brilliant moments of a variety of birds popping in and out of the trees. So much easier to spot them when there are no leaves blocking views and its a bright sunshine day. Thank you Des plus group for a lovely time.
