East Hyde water meadow; view SE from Thrales End Road. The road marks the Beds border as does the river beyond. The nearside bank and this side stream are Herts territory. On view this afternoon from this spot were three Jack Snipe, eight Common Snipe, Little Egret, two Green Sandpipers, two male Goosander, Kingfisher and a Water Rail as well as good numbers of Gadwall, Little Grebe and Teal. Can you see the Jack Snipe in the near foreground ?
