Amwell gravel pits, Middlesex - 9th July 2009

Flushed with success from our Empirical morning, we paid our virgin visit to Amwell gravel pits (H&MWT) for the early afternoon. Highlights included a Hobby buzzing around our heads, about a hundred Lapwings, a Ringed Plover and a confiding Little Egret by the hide, many not quite- and just-fledged Common Terns, a pair of Bullfinches, and a lack of humans.
