Queen Mother Res - 15 March 2012

A brief visit after work to get out and enjoy some of the nice weather after being stuck in the office all day proved a fairly worthwhile visit with a second winter Iceland Gull in the roost sitting in the middle of the reservoir looking at a distance almost pure white. The Great Northern Diver was still present, only 20 feet from the reservoir wall, but no camera. A nice male Black Redstart was on the fence making feeding sorties onto the reservoir inside concrete bank, with a small flock of Fieldfare and Redwings feeding on the grassy bank.
