Tuesday 15th May

There was a report of a Black-necked Grebe yesterday although I didn’t see it, I took the dog with me yesterday so I stayed at the periphery of the Reservoir. It was quiet with a couple of Whitethroat, Skylark, two Common Tern and the Teal. I also saw the demise of a Great Tit, it dived into cover only for the Sparrowhawk to follow it straight in and despatch the bird – that’s nature for your – Tooth and Claw!

However, this morning (Wednesday) there were seven Wheatears in the potato fields and I had only my third record of House Sparrow for the garden today as well – but I was more impressed with the Wheatear.
