RAVENS and SMEWS at Amwell

A Pied Wagtail early in the morning was a year tick for the site. We're still awaiting Meadow Pipit!

I had 5 Little Egrets, 39 Linnets and 2 Ravens early in the morning, and a total of at least 8 Smew (2 adult males, 6 redheads), on Great Hardmead, Tumbling Bay and Hollycross Lake.

Little else of note today (despite a reasonable build-up of gulls in the afternoon), but Stoat and Weasel were nice. Although the Weasel lives near the viewpoint, it was only the second time I've seen it this year (Jan Hein).
