I mentioned to Trish before the New Year that there were Waxwings seen at Maldon in Essex and did she want to come up and...
So we set off early this morning and parked at Morrisons at Maldon and.... nothing a cyclist stopped us and said he was going to look at another roundabout so we walked to it (he stopped on the way back to say approx 15). We got there and.... yes there they were in the tree cameras pointed up and birds flew!!! Still we got to see them.
We headed back to Amwell. Without a scope I couldn't find a Smew BUT did see a female Goosander, Goldeneye, Snipe and Siskin.

We had lunch at the excellent Rainbow and Dove the best pub in Harlow, that isn't much of a compliment really but the pub is very good. I'm not sure it is technically in Harlow.
