Hatfield Forest and Rye Meads

I spent a pleasant morning and early afternoon birding Hatfield Forest and Rye Meads.

Hatfield Forest. Threw up a nice surprise in the form of a Little Owl. Lots of warblers about including Common Whitethroat. Bullfinches quite evident as well. The lake was devoid of Great Crested Grebes but there was a Common Tern over. Cuckoos calling as well.

Lots of young birds at Rye Meads, including Little Grebes, coots and Pochards. Fly through Peregrine as well. Common Terns returning. Highlight was the return of a pair of Kingfishes giving super views.
