Wonderful Whinchats

I'd been down at the reservoir again this morning but still there was nothing to shout about apart from a female Tufted Duck joining the two males. Crows had increased to 81 and there were two Ravens present. However a call from Tim Davie got me up to an exposed spot above Parsonage Reservoir where there were two lovely Whinchats faithful to one spot. I could hardly stand upright in the easterly gale so they must have been clinging on for dear life to the fence! Thanks Tim & Janet!

  1. Definitely two 'lovely' Whinchats Dave, heading towards 'Mega' status and a bird which never fails to have me jumping up and down at the sight of them.
