Bank Holiday Monday at the reservoirs

A second juvenile BLACK TERN joined the relocating Startop's bird on Wilstone this evening (RDA, SR). Meanwhile not much change, the Ferruginous Duck x Northern Pochard hybrid was again present, along with 5 Little Egrets, 3 Greenshank, 3 Common Sandpipers, 3 Ringed Plovers and 2 Hobbys. Five Yellow Wagtails flew over and 1 Common Gull. Good numbers of Sand Martins, probably several hundred. The Chinese Water Deer continue to show well, 3 this evening (Steve Rodwell)
