East Hyde early afternoon

At 1.30 the goose flock was in the field near Bower Heath Lane (in Herts), and contained two adult EURASIAN WHITE-FRONTED GEESE, 8 Egyptian Geese, 5 Greylags, 77 Canada and 1 Canada x Greylag (presumed) hybrid. These were viewable from the footpath (old railway line) near the Mill.

At East Hyde itself, the Water Rail showed very well again just upstream of the bridge in the main river with the male Common Goldeneye and a Little Egret (all in Beds), while the stream held a single Common Snipe and 2 Teal (Jason Chapman)
