Waxwing at Bramfield
Not a bad self-found but still a tiny bit disappointed that we hadn't yet seen Hawfinches. We moved on to Amwell where we were immediately shown a BITTERN perched up in the reed bed opposite the viewing point. Next, a short walk along the canal where we soon arrived at the next lake which provided us with rather good views of the long-staying 1st winter drake SCAUP. The Smew eluded us as did the recently reported Lesser Spot but a second attempt at the Hawfinches raised my spirits a little.
