Was expecting rain today, but the forecast changed and it turned out to be cold, windy and cloudy.
Usual assortment of Sunday birders at Amwell, so lots to talk about. Three Black terns were the highlight, along with two Dunlin, a Ringed Plover and a Common Sandpiper. The Oystercatchers have three  well grown chicks and there are a few Lapwing chicks still running around. Huge numbers of hirundines feeding over the water but nothing unusual among them.

At home, we have our first juvenile Goldfinches and Starlings on the feeders. One young Robin has been present for about a week now, and there are one or young two Blackbirds around too.
