Saturday 21st August

Had a walk around in showery weather. The weather conditions contributed to 200 to 300 mixed hirundines and a single Swift at the east end of the reservoir, with the overhead wires holding around 70 Sand Martin at one point.

Warbler corner had in excess of 20 Chiffchaff, 6 Willow Warbler, 8 Blackcap, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, 1 Marsh Tit, 1 Bullfinch, 2 Nuthatch, 4 Goldcrest.

The two “Scottish Play” duck were still off the carpark. I also counted in excess of 110 Great Crested Grebe.
