West London reservoirs - 3 Jan 2011

I took a run around some of the West London reservoirs to get a few extra birds for the start of the year, with Wraysbury Res holding at least one Great Northern Diver and a female Red-breasted Merganser. A tour around the Wraysbury GP complex produced 12 Smew (2 drakes). Staines Res the Velvet Scoter, another female Smew and 9 still surviving Ruddy Ducks.

Denise had a brief session in the garden whilst I was out and had:

Blackbird x 1
Goldfinch x 5
Siskin x 1
Great Tit x 1
Blue Tit x 1
plus 1 re-trap
