Wednesday 6th January

Spent the morning planting bulbs! Not my choice!

Received a message to say that a Great Northern Diver had appeared at the Reservoir. I packed everything away and headed over. The bird was ridiculously close and showed really well before disappearing briefly. Also present was a Scaup which was rather distant.

I then went to the Gravel Pits where I met Bobby D for the 2nd time in the day a roosting Barn Owl performed well but I had to wait until dusk for the Short-eared Owl to appear. Whilst we were there a Little Egret flew past.
