Redwing in the Rain

Hemel (BMT): rained all night. Earth sodden underfoot; grey, gloomy morning with drizzle and hail(!). On Harding's Moor, a group of 27 Redwing, 7 Mistle Thrushes and 10+ Goldfinches probing the soft earth, taking advantage of vulnerable worms trying to avoid drowning…vicious predators.

A Song Thrush has a territory on the east side of Harding's Moor and a Wren was checking out the sticks and vegetation used to enhance the flow of the Bulbourne.

Sparrowhawk & Red Kite over Bulbourne Meadow. Regular Kingfisher ♀, Little Egrets (2) & Grey Wagtails (2) also along Bulbourne. 1 Little Egret along river Gade, Gadebridge Park.
