Prescot reservoiors,

A nice pair of red crested pochard graced the reservoirs today. Found by Chris D they were very wary birds keeping as far away from any observers as possible. They were feeding by diving 20ft or so to the bottom of the reservoirs to reach the weed and then surfacing with big clumps. Arriving just as some nasty freezing weather on the east coast and the near continent hit. These birds were gone the next day.
