The aythya hybrid again roosted at the West pool with 19 Pochard and departed east at 9:15am with 15 Pochard. The Lesser Scaup mimic seems likely to be the same bird that has frequented Amwell in recent winters.
The RUFF and COMMON REDSHANK were again feeding on Stockade Mead. The Ruff commutes with the Lapwing flock to their new roost on the New River bank beside the East pool and shows an injured leg in flight confirming Lee's observation of a limp of yesterday.
Also Little Egret flying west at 8:10am, Kingfisher, 6 Siskin on Little Mead and 4 Common Stonechat (Simon Knott)
