WHINCHAT by Miswell Farm - first of the year at the reservoirs

After failing to see a WHINCHAT at all last year it was a relief and pleasure to see one this morning on the hedges by Miswell Farm after my walk around Wilstone Res. Maybe I should go up the hills once in a while to improve my chances of seeing this species - they are never as numerous round the reservoirs as they are in the hills.

The reservoir itself had one juvenile LITTLE RINGED PLOVER in Cemetery Corner, 2+ Greenshank in various places, one Green Sandpiper, one Common Sandpiper and at least four Little Egrets (Roy Hargreaves)
