This is an account of my birding trips in the valley plus holidays birding abroad.

First stop was Croxley moor flying solo I parked on the River Gade bridge as I followed up Geoff Laptop's report of Wheatear on the moor I was ecstatic to find three individuals which I tried to photograph.Also present chiffchaff,reed bunting etc.
Met Paul Lewis back to the common so he could get a year tick then on to the Withey beds where Chiffchaffs were belting it out.
Finally Stockers farm produced a dust bathing chaffinch and 30c Wigeon flushed by Led Zep 2 creating a whole lotta birds in flight.
