Ingrebourne Hill

Ingrebourne Hill - This former gravel extraction site has been landfilled and landscaped and managed by The Forestry Commision. Its main feature is the hill that gives it its name, from the top of which there are good views across London and the Thames to the South Downs and where a mountain bike course has been constructed.




Pretty quite bird wise, the unfrozen part of  the small lake held mainly Coots with a few Moorhen and 1 Little Grebe. Thrushes were the commonest birds across the hill with Fieldfares being in the majority. They were continually moving and getting close to one perched was almost impossible, managed to fire off one shot which is below.
