Cassio. Park, Bury Lake and a Hobby from the bus
The morning bus trip into Watford at 7:45am was, as usual, very uneventful except for a brief glimpse of a Hobby (looked like an adult due to the dark slate/black coloured back) and was heading towards Kings Langley, seen from the roundabout at Junction 20. Also on the journey saw 1 Grey Heron perched in a dead tree to the right of the road at Hunton Bridge, also a prime sight for Red Kite but unfortunately none today. Only 2 Ring-necked Parakeets seen today along the short walk between Stratford Way and WGSB. Also went sailing today at 2:00pm but little was there except for a couple Mute Swans. The drop in wind in comparison to last week has meant fewer migrant birds past through and no hirundines or Terns were noted.
