Canal festival at Rickmansworth

A re asonable success Sat was sunny and Sun was windy with sunny intervals,a few stalwarts were entertained  by a talk on Bury GP and Stockers gravel pits.
But the walks were a success with parents and children viewing a vast array of species being viewed from  the causeway between Stockers and Bury lake also taking in Stockers farm where Buzzards and Swallows  obliged,of note along the causeway a pair of Reed Bunting were feeding young,a Greenfinch was singing.
While overhead Common Tern were carrying fish to the females nesting on Stockers,on Bury lake the gaudy male Red Crested Pochard with it's duller female showed well,as did a Mute Swan with 6 cygnets as did the ever present Coot with a brood.
A great weekend for the Colne Valley and the Canal festival.
