SCAUP still present at Startop's

Once again, a reminder that all of my Tring Reservoirs news can be found on my blogspot there.......

Three LITTLE EGRETS flew from Stocker's Lake over Chorleywood heading towards the Chess Valley at 0550 hours
Checked a number of Bedfordshire woodlands early morning where 2 LESSER REDPOLLS highlighted and 2 singing Common Chiffchaffs; LITTLE OWL in usual tree at SANDY SMITH NR and 9 Chinese Water Deer at BECKERINGS PARK FARM. Another singing Chiffchaff at HOCKLIFFE McDONALDS.
Over at TRING RESERVOIRS, the female GREATER SCAUP remained at STARTOP'S, plus 2 Common Redshank, 2 Little Grebes, 2 Wigeon and 4 Grey Wagtails. The Barnacle Goose was in the MARSWORTH PADDOCKS before flying off to WILSTONE, where 5 SAND MARTINS, 2 Oystercatchers and 4 EGYPTIAN GEESE were seen. Also, singing male MARSH TIT, Treecreeper, Green & Great Spotted Woodpecker and 5 Goldeneye noted.

A male NORTHERN WHEATEAR graced the manure pile at WOODOAKS FARM, where also 10 Skylark, 22 Fieldfare and 8 Redwing were noted
