So many of my childhood stamping grounds in this thread - lived in Harlow and went to school in Bishop's Stortford in the 70s & 80s. A copy of the Birds of Hatfield Forest pamphlet on my shelf at home - Hawfinch, Willow Tit, Tree Sparrow, Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, etc... Amwell was effectively my patch in the late 80s & early 90s but visited it irregularly. 👍

All the best
