Given that we were expecting heavy rain and thunderstorms today, it did not seem worth making any plans. Having woken up to fairly bright skies and light drizzle i went down to Amwell for a while.
The weather looked worse the further south i got, but it was ok when i arrived. Tony was the only one present this morning. Not much to see, though there are a lot of young Herons and Egrets at the moment. The Little Ring Plovers seem to have gone though Oystercatchers and Redshank are still here.
Spent some time photographing the Sedge Warbler in the Hemlock and a rather desperate singing Whitethroat. The rain arrived around 45 minutes after I got there and gradually got worse-did not stop the Whitethroat though.
