Wood warbler and Dotterel

First stop today was Ford Green nature reserve in Staffordshire to see (but sadly not hear) a wood warbler. This was almost a good phot, but not quite!

This male dotterel was near Broomhead reservoir in South Yorkshire, with about 30 summer plumage golden plover. I don't think I've seen such a pale dotterel in spring before.

One of at least six black-necked grebes we saw at Woolston Eyes today.

Woolston Eyes Number 3 bed. I first visited Woolston Eyes in 1984 and for 10 years it was the nearst thing I had to a local patch, visiting almost daily at times. Today was my first visit to the place in nearly 20 years!
