The Staines massif and Stockers lake

Well Paul Lewis and I were off to Staines res to check out divers,we searched on a cold spring morn amongst the tufted and goldeneye and wigeon etc and eventually found two great northern divers at some distance,scoped only we returned along the causeway telling another birder of our joy,he was disinterested and replied right right right perhaps his name was Ian.
So we left Ian in his own world and made our way back to Rickmansworth and Stockers Lake where we parked at the pumping station.We bumped in to Harrow NHS saw a male goosander ,spotted two poachers then photographed red crested pochards.
Moving on around Stockers found a chiff chaff singing and displaying goldeneye,from another hide a fox hunting in day light,at the point from the kingfisher hide nuthatches and two rolands{rats} posed for the camera.Moving on Stockers tsunami has blitzed the trees canal side, next stop the dragon fly ponds where frogs spawn was in evidence.We returned via Stockers farm where displaying lapwing obliged.
