There were Redwing in the hedges and a female Blackcap.
Amongst the many teal, shoveler etc was a lovely Male Wigeon
There were 2 adult mutes and 3 juveniles.... they took off and this chap thought nope and came straight back the rest flew off then flew back over but he stayed put.
On my stroll there were plenty of Blue, Great and Long Tailed Tits in the bushes and in the reeds.
3 Ring Necked Parakeets flew over and later 4 more. A first for me there.
There was a very distant Bittern! And lots of Snipe
So after lunch I went for a stroll around Thaxted. I haven't been for a while...
It is amazing how many planes flew over.
