Stocker's Lake - 14 & 16 June 2012

I am afraid I could not resist it, with the Little Bittern only being about 10 miles from home I could not go and see it, well try. Thursday evening unfortunately proved fruitless apart from a Little Egret flying over, but Saturday morning was more productive with nice views of the female Little Bittern as feed in the reeds on the edge of the River Colne. It was followed by a singing Cetti's Warbler as I noted down some cr Mute Swans on Bury Lake, which due to the fact I was writing them on my hand, half were lost when I washed them before emailing them off to Mike Reed who is ringing them!
