Dunstable - We spent a cold and, at times, snowy weekend with friends at Dunstable our former home town for nigh on 30 years. On Saturday morning I met my old birding pal Rob Dazley, and current warden, at Dunstable sewage works nature reserve to see how things were progressing on the management front. Rob and the team had obviously been very busy through the winter clearing islands and the wader scrape and making new tern rafts for the forthcoming breeding season. The site looked in great shape, and there were plenty of birds on and around the lagoons including dabbling ducks, gulls and grebes on the lagoons, plus 2 Little Egrets and several Grey Wagtails.
A very enjoyable weekend, apart from Saturday afternoon when I went to see MKDons v QPR at their new Milton Keynes stadium - least said the better, I feel...
