(Record Shot Compilation)
A very good evening at the reservoir produced several highlights and a mystery! First of all the highlights were: 1 Black Tern (juv), 1 Spotted Flycatcher, 3 Redstart, 67 Yellow Wagtail, 1 Greenshank. Now for the mystery...Andrew Whitcomb had a Black-necked Grebe on 24th and 27th. And got video of the bird...I saw a Black-necked Grebe tonight but it wasn't around when I first arrived and then to add to the confusion Alan Kitson had a Little Grebe this afternoon which I didn't see at allfrom c6.00pm onwards! I presume the Black-necked is doing what the Goosander do and go to the quiet local farm ponds while the reservoir is busy then return in the evening to roost. Andrew also had a Wigeon at the res this morning and by the time I had got there this evening it had turned into a Shoveler! Someone's playing tricks on us!
