▷ Birdwatching at Amwell


The Birdwatching Group 1 outing in early September was to Amwell near Ware, where the hides are finally open again so we had a good spot to eat lunch and watch for birds. We were rewarded by a reed warbler hopping on the hemp agrimony just below us, and a common sandpiper flying in (though so well camouflaged against the stones). A highlight of a short woodland walk was a family of weasels scampering across the path in front of us, and the butterflies and dragonflies were out enjoying the sunshine.
