A MEALY REDPOLL showed (more or less...) for about 30 minutes this morning, in the birches south of the lock at Tumbling Bay Lake. It was accompanied by only 4 Lesser Redpolls.
.While waiting for a gull roost that never really materialised (and was disturbed by gun shots again...), a PINK-FOOTED GOOSE flew in with a mixed flock of Greylags, Canadas and hybrids. Probably the Stevenage bird, according to Barry who had seen pictures. My video footage only looks good on the camera I'm afraid! It flew off after about 30 minutes, towards Harlow.
Otherwise, all the expected ducks were present, including only one female Smew. Two Cetti's Warblers were heard and the Harris's Hawk flew by. I made an afternoon cycle tour of the Hertford rowans... at least I now know where they are (which can't be said of the Waxwings) (Jan Hein).
