For some reason I've been rather lazy and lethargic for the start of the new year, especially in getting around to doing some new posts, I guess if I was a famous author I could say I'm suffering from 'writers block'!
However, I have managed to get out and visit a few local parks and lakes including...Tring Reservoirs where I was fortunate enough to see a couple of Common Snipe and a Jack Snipe (alas, too distant for photo's) and where the long staying Snow Bunting is still showing well...Stockgrove Country Park where a host of, well fed!, small birds can be seen at close quarters (photo's below) and I also saw, not one, but two Goldcrest bathing in a small puddle (sorry, NO photo's below, once they saw me they were gone!!)...Caldecotte Lake, on a pleasantly sunny day, where the highlight from amongst the forty different species noted was seeing three, well showing, Goosanders (a female with two males) I also had a pleasant chat, via mobile 'phone across the length of the lake, with Keith from Caldecottelake
A few images and a short video ( I'm still getting to grips with the editing!!) from my visit to Stockgrove Country Park.
