Staines (4th January)

Another visit to Staines, this time covering the moor first as dense fog would make viewing over the res's almost impossible.  I located 5 Water Pipits on the moor (four at the southern end feeding on the banks of the Colne River and a single in the centre of the moor).  Despite a considerable amount of effort I couldn't locate the Dartford Warbler or any Short-eared Owls although I think I'm entitled to say that may be down to the poor weather suppressing any of their attempts come out of cover as they did appear the following day.

Moving on to Staines Reservoir, the long staying Scaup and Great Northern Diver were both still present along with 3 Black-necked Grebes and 2 Redshank.
