I am so pleased to announce that I have another article published in Hertfordshire Life magazine. This piece was inspired by wintery walks around the county and focussed on three Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust sites in particular: Lemsford Springs, Amwell and Stocker’s Lake. During my visit to Stocker’s Lake, I was treated to an incredible kingfisher sighting – my first glimpse of the bird that wasn’t just a zoomy blue blur dashing up the river. I also spent the afternoon watching great crested grebes, ring-necked parakeets and shovelers.
Other avian highlights at these reserves include green sandpipers, fieldfare, redpolls and spew, a particularly striking bird that overwinters from Russia and Scandinavia. I learnt so much researching this article and it’s such a thrill to see it in print. For anyone living in Herts, get yourself a copy and get inspired during these chilly winter months!
