12th of Jan 2013 Stockers and Chess Valley

Walked to Stockers on Saturday morning passed Woodoaks farm noticed two
Egyptian geese from the road.Passed Inns and on to Stockers where Geoff
Laptop and Tony Hulls but alas no Emu were in the Kingfisher hide where
a Red Kite passed over.
No sign of the Smew but Goosander and Goldeneye obliged in particular a
confiding female.Walked in to Rickmansworth for a tea break then walked to
Scotsbridge meadows the Chess valley to the uninitiated.
Little Egret showed well in the cress bed and a pair of Common Buzzards were calling
and setting up territory.I flushed a Jack snipe silent in flight and no zig zagging,
more Little Egrets  and heard Grey Wagtail as I headed downstream.
