Summer walk at Panshanger Park

Had a nice visit to Panshanger Park on the edge of hertford at the weekend with my local RSPB group. Started off well with a singing Skylark and there we headed to the reedbed area where we had good views of singing Sedge Warblers and Reed Bunting and heard a some Reed and Cetti's Warblers.

With then passed a section of wood and scub which allowed us to hear a mix of Warblers with Blackcap, Garden Warblers and Chiff- Chaffs all in song. With the day warming up a few damselflies were on the wing which bought out a few birds of prey including the bird of the day with some great views of a Hobby hunting overhead with Red Kites and Buzzards making use of the thermals.

Then walked around the far side of the main pits where we saw 7 Common Terns hunting while in the nearby tree a Young Great-spotted Woodpecker was heard and a single Whitethroat was seen in the scub to end a nive morning walk.
