Birds of a grey day...


A trundle out to Welford Reservoir between the showers this afternoon provided a Grey Wagtail, a Snipe and a Kingfisher.  The water level and that of adjacent Sulby Reservoir are at their maximum level.  Naseby Reservoir was quiet and also full of water.  Chiffchaffs and Goldcrests were in good numbers and all decent hedges and bushes seemed to hold them.  House Martins were in good numbers at the local reservoirs today and the dominant migrating hirindine.

A return to Pitsford Reservoir this evening confirmed the continued presence of the Caspian Gull, the Little Gull and the Arctic Tern and the Common Tern.  Also visible was the Black-necked Grebe again and a 2nd winter Mediterranean Gull.
