Wiltstone Reservoir

On saturday spent a pleasent afternoon at Wiltstone Reservoir with good numbers of Common Terns fishing from the steps and a few Swallows overhead though well below their spring peak, Also on the main water were Tufted Ducks, Mallard, Great Crested grebe. Then went around to the hide where on the spit had 4 Common Sandpipers and 1 Green Sandpiper feeding on the shoreline, good numbers of Lapwings, Common Tern youngster still being feed by their parents, 3 young Redshanks, 2 Little Egrets, a few Grey Herons Flying over and a family of buzzards in the distance. The real hightlight though was seeing a young hunting Peregrine Falcon over the waders on the scrape before being chased by the Lapwings and Gulls.
