Grimsbury Reservoir :: 15 April 2016

A tweet from @grimsbury_birds saying that dunlin and wheatear at Grimsbury were the reward for being out in the rain with @987jonty this morning. As the rain had stopped I thought I would drop in on the way home from work. Found both and also added house martin. Activity was high although it felt cold in the damp air.

Only disappointment was that @987jonty, whom I met in the car park as I left, reported he had later spotted redstart too though it soon vanished as they do unfortunately. Should have stayed longer and joined him!

Sightings (30) were: buzzard, blackbird, swallow, robin, woodpigeon, magpie, cormorant, carrion crow, rook, pied wagtail, white wagtail, yellow wagtail, goldfinch, greenfinch, blackcap, willow warbler, blue tit, great tit, reed bunting, dunlin, wheatear, house martin, dunnock, sand martin, green woodpecker, great-crested grebe, mallard, lesser black-backed gull, wren and bullfinch.
