SPOTTED REDSHANKS at Tring Reservoirs

Old 'Rodders strikes again - he finds two SPOTTED REDSHANKS - the first of 2009
A GARGANEY was present about midday (I guess this is the same bird that was earlier seen at the quarry). The number of YELLOW WAGTAILS in the field beyond the overflow built up to 24. Just after 6.00pm Charlie and I saw 2 SPOTTED REDSHANKS arrive. Also 1 Green Sandpiper, 4 Snipe, 2 Ringed Plovers and 3 Pintail (Steve Rodwell)

First ROCK PIPIT of the autumn
This morning a good showing of Little Egrets, the male COMMON STONECHAT was still on the hedgerows near Rushy Meadow and a calling SCANDINAVIAN ROCK PIPIT flew over about 20 metres above the ground accompanied by a Meadow Pipit (Roy Hargreaves)
