I was busy picking up a few bits in Tesco when I received a call from Jim Rudland to say that there were 3 DARK-BELLIED BRENT GEESE at Amwell.
I rushed home to drop off the shopping (yes even birders have to do shopping), pick up my binoculars and head off to to Amwell.
The 3 birds were still there but after about 20 minutes took off and looked as if they were about to depart. But, after a couple of laps of the pit, they landed again and settled down. Whether they will still be there in the morning is anyone's guess. (Alan Reynolds)
