At Last a Wader

Don’t get too excited it was just a Common Sandpiper! However, there was a little bit happening with a couple of Blackcap, a few Chiffchaff and the star bird of the day a “Lesser Whitethroat”.

The reservoir itself was quiet, although there was a brood of Great Crested Grebe that were coming along nicely. With Autumn fast approaching there were good numbers of hirundines but they were nearly all over the nearby fields rather than the reservoir itself.

All in all better than it has been.
