A Black Tern day ...

Today Pete and I visited Amwell as reports stated a Black Tern had been seen.. and voila...!! there it was.  Needless to day ( and this is getting boring....) it was a dreadful day for any type of reasonable light.

So first to Amwell:

Canada Geese Goslings... there were 2 families of them..

and (in the wildest of imaginations) this is purely a record shot of the Black Tern... furthest on the right... and a lifer for me!!

Bit of a barney with the Greylag Geese.

A Redshank fed not that far away..

And from there I headed off to Hatfield Forest..

This pair of Great crested Grebes have 3 eggs...I think they must have constructed their nest after the rise in water level!!

A common tern..

And a Greylag Goose was keeping her very young brook warm..

After Hatfield (it was still early in the morning) I headed off for Anglesey Gardens... I like it there.. it has a feeling of peace whatever the weather..

The sun did come out very briefly which helped to raise the temperatures a bit...

At least it didn't rain!!

I can't believe how many of your posts I've missed. Wonderful pictures as always. I love those old statues.
