More suppression at Hilfield Park Reservoir

The drake RED-BREASTED MERGANSER was seen by several observers at Hilfield Park Reservoir yesterday (13 April) but as usual, after countless attempts to eradicate such behaviour, its presence was unfortunately suppressed from the vast majority of us for no good reason

I have given up trying to stop this selfish approach from those that regularly visit the site and have accepted that it is very unlikely I am ever going to hear about anything there unless it is in midwinter (and even then it is most unlikely)

It is such a shame that we have to put up with this in Herts, particularly as it is such a good site with huge potential.

Browsers will be interested in the entry in the latest British Birds (April 2009, Volume 102) on page 171.
