Friday 1st October

New that today there was a drake Common Scoter at the west end of the Reservoir at 11.30 per Rare Bird  Alert.

I went around late afternoon and got a good soaking, didn’t see the Scoter but it may well have been present (my bins were redundant after about 100 yards). I did see the female Goosander fly in and there was a group of 40 Swallow and 10 House Martin looking like they had had enough in the driving rain, so by the time I get back in a weeks time I don’t expect to see them again.
