EASTER MONDAY 9 APRIL
What a dreary Easter ! The wet theme continued today with rain virtually falling all day. The wind was in the southwest and temperatures were just slightly lower than average at 11 degrees C
This was my first full day's birding since last Tuesday so I was keen to make the most of it, visiting all three Home Counties in the process and adding a few 'year birds'.....
CHESHAM FISHING LAKES (BUCKS)
Both Great Crested Grebes were on the larger lake whilst an arrival of hirundines included 5 BARN SWALLOWS and 3 HOUSE MARTINS
For the past week, a pair of RED-LEGGED PARTRIDGES has been frequenting the fields bordering the lower Chesham Road either side of Bell Lane
