Walthamstow


Today was 3rd time unlucky for the parrot crossbills at broxbourne woods but a nice male HAWFINCH was a good start.Then a short drive to walthamstow with david campbell aka (Devilbirder) we managed to get the LITTLE BUNTING which was also calling and showed well.This was my second little bunting for london and devilbirders 1st.A great little bird which saved the day.
