BLACK-NECKED GREBE still present and lost BRENT GEESE stumble in
What's happened to everybody......
I understand that RH had 6 DARK-BELLIED BRENT GEESE at Wilstone early this morning - but did they stay and did anybody else see them?
Also, the BLACK-NECKED GREBE was still present and showing exceptionally well by the jetty still - as proven by Peter Brazier's outrageously good images (see my Tring blog)
Furthermore, Mike Ilett kindly let me know that the immature drake GREATER SCAUP was still present at Amwell today
As for the ginormous Chaffinch/Brambling flock I found in the thick fog in Flaunden a few days back, Ian (and others) they were in the massive lightly tilled field immediately SE of the village. Walk south from the crossroads for about five minutes and it is the first large soiled field on your left. You could not miss them - incredible sight - but I guess with the wind increase and clear weather they have continued their migration.
There are literally hundreds of thousands of Chaffinches moving through the UK at present
