Spring migration at Amwell
Spring migration started slowly with cold northerly winds restricting bird movement and Amwell has been fairly quiet apart from the usual suspects. That changed on the 2nd May when I was alerted by Roland Powers of the presence of a Wood Sandpiper. A quick dash allowed me to get some shots before it departed later in the day.
Another fairly unexpected visitor is this White Fronted Goose which at the time of writing is still present on the "Goose Field".
And finally, on the 3rd May, low cloud and rain brought in two Sandwich Terns and six Arctic Terns. Sadly I missed the Sandwich Terns as they only stayed for around 20 minutes. I did however get some shots of the very graceful Arctic Terns.
What will turn up next?
