AMWELL leading the way

Amwell NR did well today, producing a first-winter MEDITERRANEAN GULL in the roost, 6 Egyptian Geese, BITTERN, the LESSER SPOTTED WOODPECKER (male seen for its third successive day near Hardmead Lock), the long-staying drake GREATER SCAUP and a single redhead SMEW (Mike Ilett et al), with 6 HAWFINCHES still at Bramfield and SHORT-EARED OWLS at Therfield Heath and Heartswood Forest.

The GREAT GREY SHRIKE was still at Therfield whilst WAXWING flocks included 50 on the A505 just west of Royston (Andy Graham) and 16 in South Oxhey (Joan Thompson).

A redhead SMEW remains at Tringford Reservoir (Steve Blake)
