Saturday 3rd January

After the heavy rain of this morning I ventured over this afternoon. With sailing on the main lake it looked a good bet that most of the birds would be on the small pool – and so it proved. Although I didn’t see the Common Sandpiper the Scaup and Red-crested Pochard were on the small pool.

Other highlights were 20 Common Snipe and a species that I haven’t recorded at the Reservoir for a few years Stonechat.

There are very few gulls roosting at the moment but there were two Common Gull late on and 16 Goosander.
