Today at Marsworth Reservoir (12/12/2011 approx 3 pm) I spotted a lone SNOW BUNTING at the water margin foraging and hopping about the stones. It remained in situ for approx half an hour while I watched it (and double and triple checked for a positive ID lest my eyes decieve me!) before flitting off across the water towards the reed beds. Hopefully it's lurking about there for an extended stay so other people can have the pleasure of seeing it.
Also of interest on the Marsworth water today was a pair of red crested pochard which was intriguing to see (Ashley).
