An early start at Marsworth meant that tawny Owl was still singing and I watched 10 Corn Buntings leaving the roost. Also a male Mandarin flew round before flying between the trees and above the path towards Tring.
At Wilstone the Brent Goose was in the goose field. The Water Pipit was by the jetty and flew along the bank towards the north corner. The Smew was still present near the west corner. Also 3 Little Egrets were mobile
