Back on the patch,
It was nice to visit Prescot reservoirs today. Its been a few weeks since I was last here and a few good birds were on show. A female common scoter was present from mid morning. A drake has been present on Eccleston mere the last few days, so this obvoiously a different bird. 3 sand martins shot through, a wheatear on the causeway and 4 shoveler (3m+1f) also. 18 goldeneye, 1 female pochard, 4 teal, 60 tufted duck, a pair of gadwall, 8 great crested grebe, 1 little grebe, 2 buzzard and a sparrowhawk.
