Still 1 Little Egret in Bois Mill Meadow this week and another showing very well in the Chess adjacent to Chesham Fishing Lakes. Single Mute Swan on the meadow, another on Bois Mill Pond, another on Lowndes Park Lake and a pair at Waterside.
Now 26 occupied Rook nests in Chesham Vale, while at Hyde End, 2 Lapwings & 6 Stock Doves in cereal crops along Little Hundridge Lane. Bury Lake in Chesham continues to house 2 Little Grebes, with 4 Coot & 8 Moorhen, while 3 Lapwing are back in their usual fields opposite. 60 Pheasant here was a high count.

Very quiet in Penn Wood with just 25 Redwing and a Common Treecreeper, with 23 Red Kites in at the nearby roost; 18 occupied Rook nests now at Penn Street.
