I paid a visit to the hide at Weston Turville Reservoir for an hour from 1130-1230. Before even getting to the hide a WOODCOCK flew down the path and off into the woodland.
A BITTERN flew in near to the hide and showed well for about a minute before disappearing into the reeds. 5 Common Snipe were in the 'pool', Water Rail was heard and Common Teal flew in and out. Nice to see a flock of 10-15 Long-tailed Tit surviving the cold weather (Mike Wallen)
