Walthamstow Reservoirs, east London - 20th February 2010



Couldn't resist another look at the Dusky, and being out of the house before dawn, I was at the Reservoirs in time to see a beautiful sunrise over the glassy water of Lockwood. More fine views of the Slavonian Grebe and a party of six Goldeneye (with the males displaying) before quickly relocating the very accomodating warbler, calling and feeding along its favoured stretch of the flood relief channel.

Also recorded - at least four Chiffchaffs, Green Sandpiper, three Little Egrets, two Skylarks, a Meadow Pipit and eight Shelduck.
