Stansted Airport Lagoons gets some good birds, but often on a one-day basis. My visits usually occur the day after, so they usually draw a blank. Today was no exception - a ruff seen yesterday was absent today. I took the opportunity to try and take some photos of birds in trees.
On the way back there were a few Sparrowhawks out - 1 near Hatfield Forest, and 3 over Sawbo marsh.
