Winter waders


Eleanor took Tor the hound for a run around the south section of Pitsford Reservoir this morning and observed the Red-necked Grebe immediately north of the causeway right next to the causeway tunnel, plus a couple of Grey Wagtails.

The regular Barn Owl hunting alongside a minor road on the outskirts of Scaldwell village was there again this evening...

Gossage. Two each of Redshank and Green
Sandpiper have successfully wintered here
and the first spring Oystercatchers have already
paid the reservoir a visit with the potential
of coming back a little later and trying to
breed again.
