I had to use up a days holiday before 31st March so I made a long weekend of it.
I considered heading to Norfolk but given the late spring decided it wasn't worth it. I went to Fisher's Green but the feeding station feeders weren't filled up. No Hirundines seen by me. There was a lovely Song Thrush, Great Spot, Little Egret, Cetti's and ducks and stuff.
I then went to Amwell.
Hello what's this?
Let's have a look.
Ooh I'll have a stretch.
Has he gone?
Mr & Mrs Gadwall
And a little poser!!
I actually got to see a Cetti's Warbler! A puddle in the woods was used as a bath by both a Song Thrush and a Redwing (with a Chiffchaff calling in the background). There were a couple of Redshank and a Ringed Plover.
After lunch I headed to Hatfield Forest. Chiffchaff about and a first for me a Little Grebe on the lake! It was getting bullied by a Moorhen and a Great Crested Grebe!
