Now 10 SMEW at Amwell - largest gathering for many years

Highlight of a mostly grey and cold day at Amwell were two MEALY REDPOLLS with six Lesser Redpolls which were present for less than an hour late morning near the lock at Tumbling Bay.

Ten SMEW were counted (three drakes). They flew up and down between Great Hardmead Lake and Tumbling Bay and some showed very well from the White Hide.

Furthermore: 1 Bittern, 1 Little Egret, 1 drake Mandarin, 3 Red-crested Pochard (Jan Hein)
