A walk back from the town gave up views of most of the regulars. With sunny periods, the light was good but the temperature still low. 2 buzzards were seen over the lagoons east of Hadham Hall. The lagoons themselves offered just the 2 feral duck and the 3 mute swans that have taken up winter residence. A grey heron was also near the lagoon, shown here.
A solitary herring gull lazed across the fields and several coot, moorhen and mallards were observed on the Hadham Hall ponds. A song thrush was witnessed along the footpath behind the school where also the 3rd buzzard of the walk was recorded.
Photos depict the grey heron, mute swan, singing robin, buzzard and a view across the full lagoon, looking south to Cradle End. Finally, a surprise in the sky, a chinook helicopter!
