Monday 6th September

Little Stint, Dave Hutton

Briefly this morning saw a Hobby rip across the Reservoir. Hopefully more later.

Little Egret, Dave Hutton
Another good bird for the Reservoir, this time Little Stint (118) which spent its time feeding near to the outflow tower towards the west end of the reservoir. By evening it had moved from here, where it had left or relocated elsewhere around the reservoir is hard to say but with heavy rain falling it wasn’t worth searching. The two Little Egrets are still around with one bird usually found on the edge by the car park. There was also a Common Sandpiper and upto seven Common Tern. This mornings Hobby was seen twice this evening as there are good numbers of Swallows and House Martins around.
