College Lake (BBOWT Flagship Reserve)

Whilst in Hertfordshire visiting my grandparents, I was pleased to be able to visit College Lake and go on a guided walk with warden Owain and volunteer Graeme.  We saw pochard, dunnock, reed bunting, jay, kestrel, black headed gulls, peregrine falcon, tufted duck, widgeon, heron, gold finch, great tit, robin, green finch, long tailed tit, gadwall, snipe and more.  I learnt about the Robin's Pincushion and how the larvae of a tiny wasp lives inside.
