Pitsford Reservoir, Northamptonshire

I was in Northamptonshire this morning doing a pre-construction badger survey for a solar farm, and then this afternoon I moved over to Cambridgeshire, near Peterborough, ready for a couple of bird surveys tomorrow. On the way I called in at Pitsford Reservoir and found the long staying red-necked grebe in Moulton Grange Bay. While I was there somebody found a pair of smew in Holcot Bay which was an unexpected bonus.

Year: 267 (Red-necked grebe).

Red-necked grebe (note the yellow bill).

Drake smew.
