Grimsbury Reservoir :: 10 April 2016

A Twitter update from @grimsbury_birds alerted me that the recent redstart had been spotted again. I had a lot on and so could only afford a very short visit, enough for a single circuit. The redstart was spotted on the western edge of the reservoir but not to be seen when I passes back and forth - the stream of dog walkers wasn't likely to help.

Talking to others it appeared that a sedge warbler was present on the eastern side. Grey wagtailAgain not visible on my pass but did add willow warbler and blackcap to the year list. I must remember to drop a pair of binoculars and some boots into the car and try to visit a lunchtimes when the site is quieter.

Sightings (25): blackbird, blackcap, black-headed gull, blue tit, buzzard, carrion crow, chaffinch, goldcrest, goldfinch, great tit, great-crested grebe, grey wagtail, jackdaw, long-tailed tit, magpie, mallard, pied wagtail, reed bunting, robin, rook, starling, swallow, willow warbler, white wagtail and wren.
