Paid a couple of trips over the weekend, but the reservoir was very popular and the disturbance probably attributed to the lack of birds in what is a generally quiet time of year. However, Great Crested Grebe number well over 60 birds with at least three successful broods and a couple of pairs are still on eggs. There are at least six Little Grebe on the reservoir. Kingfisher appear to have bred as well with three birds seen. Lapwing numbers are on the rise with single figures until the weekend peak of around 25 individuals. There were also a couple of Common Sandpiper seen on Saturday evening.
