Bank Holiday Weekend very quiet apart from Ashridge WOOD WARBLER

Undoubted highlight of the weekend was a singing male WOOD WARBLER in Ashridge Forest, favouring the Oaks and Silver Birches on both the Bucks and Herts side of the border just east of Clinksmere Pond at the far end of Monument Drive; also a male LESSER SPOTTED WOODPECKER in this area

Otherwise, the reservoirs were very quiet, reeling GRASSHOPPER WARBLERS on both Wilstone and Marsworth and the odd BLACK TERN and LITTLE GULL passing through quickly - certainly nothing rare to be seen
