|Goldfinch roost, late afternoon|
|pair of tufties, Hadham Hall lagoon.|
Having heard of 2 suspected shoveler seen heading over Stortford and maybe in the direction of Hadham Hall lagoon, I thought it worth a quick check. Squally and cold conditions didn't make the wander too pleasant. However, a good flock of goldfinches were seen roosting at Hadham Hall whilst at the lagoon 4 tufted duck (2 pairs) and the resident little grebe were all I got. Good number of mixed gull flocks were heading south down the Ash Valley, probably to the gull roost at Amwell. Poor weather conditions have scuppered my plans for a good walk today, so shall plan an early morning wander tomorrow.
