Swiss Gardens

The sun was out though it was quite breezy, so I decided to check on some woodland adjacent to Swiss Gardens, near Old Warden (TL147447). The hoped-for Yellow-browed Warbler or Firecrest never materialized, and the wood was generally quiet. On the small lake were single Wigeon and Mandarin, whilst overhead a Raven was heard 'cronking' and I was lucky enough to see it through a small break in the tree canopy above. Two Tawny Owls hooted, but I failed to locate them among the Ivy-clad trees.
