The waders that had graced the reservoir for a few days have now gone, it will be interesting to see what turns up next.
Meanwhile, in Upper Wardington, the starling flock has grown to about 300 birds, the vast majority are juveniles. They have taken to bathing in our small garden pond, creating quite a splashy spectacle as wave after wave pile in for a quick wash. The vegetation in the pond has been trampled flat already.
Song thrushes (three) are gathering in a yew tree laden with berries, let's hope they can make them last into the winter.
