A large and brightly coloured bird

Eccleston Mere,
A fine pair of garganey were showing well on the mere in the glorious morning sunshine. They seemed a little on edge staying in the middle of the mere and eventually finding cover under the overhanging trees of the island. They seemed pretty settled when we left at 9.30am but I think on sundays the yatchs and pleasure boats are out in force later in the day.
Prescot reservoirs,
A couple of wheatears and a white wagtail were new today. Blackcaps, willow warblers and chiffchaffs singing everywhere. 1 Little grebe, 5 goldeneye,10 great crested grebe,
