I poked my head out of the front window this morning and was surprised to find none of that wet stuff normally found in the air.
I promptly went to Hatfield Forest. Oh boy is everything saturated! Nothing unusual about. Green Woodies very showy. Some big finch flocks, nice to see so many Greenfinches. Lots of Singing, Blackbirds and Song Thrushes in particular fine voice. Nuthatch about but I've still to see a Treecreeper (!!) and a Marsh Tit
The Lake highlight was the pair of Great Crested Grebes. Perhaps my favourite sites of Summer for the past two years has been Mr & Mrs Grebe and young and the Common Terns with young over the forest.
I wandered on and stopped at the entrance to Audley End Manor. The river was VERY high, amongst the Mallards and Canada Geese were a lone Black Swan, 4 Barnacle Geese and 2 Little Grebe.
Light still dull and grey. Still here are a few images.
