Betwixt and between

So I headed over the forest this morning, it all seemed a bit quiet winter migrants are heading off and the summer ones haven't arrived.

Still there were at least 6 Great Crested Grebes on the lake together with a pair of Swans and a Kingfisher. Also coot numbers were up.






After lunch I went down to Amwell.





Also pretty quiet but I did get a fleeting glimpse of a Cetti's Warbler and there were some Siskins still about.

OOops sorry; noticed my error just as I submitted comment - obviously meant Reed Bunting (blush).
