Arlington Reservoir

Black Tern - Juv

(Record Shot Compilation)

Yellow Wagtail
Spotted Flycatcher

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!


  1. Nike respect the heat. Asics Onitsuka Tiger Wearing Nike trainers shoes ran in the northern hemisphere, did you try? It's simple. Franklin Marshall Store You run slower in the heat; you run slower in humidity; if it's hot and humid you'll run significantly slower than on a cool, dry night. Now, you're probably thinking, the north face jackets "Great. I won't be able to run this summer in my town where it can be 90 plus degrees with 80 percent humidity." Not true. You can run, but you have to do three important things when training seriously in the heat of the summer. Just enjoy the summer months, Moncler Sale but be willing to alter your training in the heat.
