Hatfield Forest between the hail showers

A walk round Hatfield Forest Lake with youngest daughter. An early Swallow over the lake, a few Gadwall and a pair of Great-Crested Grebes nest building on it.  Some Chiffchaffs calling, then round the east side a flurry of woodland/coppice activity; a Treecreeper, a Marsh Tit, and a Nuthatch.

D had the camera and produced some nice snaps (see below). A pleasure to go for a walk with her today, and to be able to point out the Treecreeper doing its thing at close quarters. In MBYOW I'd definitely do more of this. I should hurry up and get on with it before she grows out of going for walks with her dad.
