Elsewhere, there was some great news in the Bearded Tit saga this morning. The two females which had spent a number of weeks at Hyde Park before moving to Regents Park recently, have been seen back at Amwell this morning. Hopefully they'll be off again soon towards the east coast to find mates.

RSPB The Lodge

A first! A Mealy Redpoll was the highlight of our visit the The Lodge. It was under the feeders with Lesser Redpolls, Siskins, a Nuthatch and Brambling.

My Dad saw and took this photo of a female Siskin in our garden. It's only the third Siskin we've ever seen in our garden and the first for two years.
