Christmas Eve at the Reservoirs

A superb hour and a half out and about this morning.

SNOW BUNTING still on Startops Reservoir in its usual area ( Herts ).

The JACK SNIPE was showing fantastically well on Marsworth reservoir ( Herts ), at the Southern end along the edge of the reeds (If you're stood on the causeway its along the edge of the reeds on your right as you look out across the water, it was about two-thirds of the way across). Alongside it was a Common Snipe. Also there were 3 Water Rails, Grey Wag and 19 Shoveler.

The first-winter DARK-BELLIED BRENT GOOSE was in the field with Greylags to the rear of the jetty at Wilstone (Ted & Mike Wallen).
