I’m Back

Having just returned from Goa for a fortnight I am still catching up at home and work, but I will get over the Reservoir soon I promise.

While I was away I had a text from Steve Haynes at an ungodly hour to say that there was an adult Med Gull at the reservoir, I see there was also a Smew on and off.

I have enclosed a few photographs of some of the birds that I saw. We had 276 species in 14 days which is good in anyones language.
