Reservoir Dog!


This afternoon we paid some visits to local reservoirs, starting at Welford/Sulby.  Here there were two juvenile Black Terns, 7 Common Terns and 2 Common Sandpipers.  Next was Naseby where the Great Crested Grebes have clearly had a great breeding year with lots of youngsters of all ages.  Other birds here included 3 Common Sandpipers and 2 Grey Wagtails.  A visit to Hollowell Res provided just 5 Common Terns and a Ruff.

The gull roost at Pitsford Res this evening yielded 2 juvenile Mediterranean Gulls, 6 Yellow-legged Gulls, 6 Common Terns and an adult Black Tern.

Also this evening, 4 Whinchats were again present in the southern-most field at Blueberry Farm, Maidwell.
