Danemead HAWFINCHES and Amwell today

At Amwell, I found back the missing three Red-crested Pochards on Tumbling Bay.

Otherwise: 2 Little Egrets, 1 Bittern (shortly in flight at noon), 1 Common Shelduck (late morning), 1 Pintail (dropped in late morning), 2 Ravens (distant & flying east late morning) and 33 Linnets on their way to a roost.

I missed a fly-through Goosander as I went to Danemead in the morning, where I saw two HAWFINCHES (and heard two more) between the parking and Danemead reserve [one was seen around 2:30 in the traditional roost trees]. A large, mobile flock of Chaffinches contained one leucistic bird and a (heard-only) Brambling. On Danemead, one Mealy Redpoll was present in a flock of 25 Lessers (Jan Hein Steenis)
