GROPPER still present at Weston Turville Reservoir

After a very brief and cold look at Wilstone with nothing of note seen I decided to head for Weston Turville and a nice warm hide!

The magic of reedbeds at this time of the year was in full flow with warblers in full song all over the place. The Gropper was still present but the cold weather was probably keeping the reeling to short bursts. In contrast Sedge Warblers were going mad trying to out-sing eachother and plenty of Reed Warblers were further into the main reedbed.

A Common Sandpiper flew across the water and landed on one of the fishing platforms and c70 Swallows were over the water (Rob Andrews)
