Goldeneye and Pintail starred in the Birdwatchers’ March visit to the Amwell Nature Reserve. Nine members of the new group took advantage of the reserve's large and well-sited hides to observe a wide range of ducks and other water birds. Stars of the show were some Pintails and a Goldeneye. We also had a good view of a pair of Reed Buntings and a number of nesting Cormorants. We also saw a Red Kite, a bird increasingly seen in our skies. This one was one of a pair expected to nest on the reserve this year.
