Tuesday 12th October
Thought I would take a walk around the reservoir in the morning. First up, off the car park was a group of 18 Shoveler. I thought that would be the day’s highlight. Fortunately, within 100 yards a Rock Pipit (123) flew up being harried by Pied Wagtails, it called flew 100 yards further away and tried to settle it was still there late morning but never seemed overly settled.
The rest of the walk the highlights were a Willow Tit and Nuthatch around the small pool. The Black Tern seems to have left and again there were no warblers or hirundines. There has been a big influx of thrushes today with 50+ Blackbird and 25+ Redwing.
