I woke up at 8am, for me that is amazingly late!! I dragged myself out of bed and headed to Bishops Stortford, I was in two minds what to do. It was cold but the sun was glorious and I fancied a walk at Anglessey Abbey but I headed to Rye Meads.
So I arrive at Rye Meads open the boot and WTF!!!! No telephoto and no binoculars!! I was not impressed so home I go put them in the car and head back. I was not a happy bunny.
This of course all changed when two Lesser Redpolls were sitting in a tree by the centre door :)
The water was partially frozen at Draper Hide all very quiet but a few teal about.
The trails had a Redwing, Fieldfare and a Song Thrush joining the Blackbird.
Look at that blue sky!
As I walked towards the Kingfisher hide a Green Woodpecker took off.
No kingfishers but this was there instead
Carried on with an enjoyable stroll.
