6th of December 2013.

Draycote Reservoir.

Species seen 25.

A very swift visit at lunch time with a hope of seeing the reported Great Northern Diver proved fruitful in seeing the immature bird just before the Farborough spit. While walking back I also had sightings of a distant Long Tailed Duck, Red Breasted Merganser, Goosanders, plus many Great Crested Grebes and three Little Grebes.


 
Upon leaving the car park the trees lining the country park were host to many Redwing. Today was by far my shortest visit, however a good one for year ticks!
