Lesser Yellowlegs - Cheddar Reservoir, Somerset

A lovely Morning at Cheddar Reservoir very cold but over the moon to get Lesser Yellowlegs such an amazing bird and a lifer for me, and showed so well, I just love it when birds come close like this and watching him fed and bathe it just amazes me, loved him just wish I hadn't been so cold and needed the toilet so we could of spent longer with him but just happy to of seen him :) and we were very lucky as the next day he had gone.

Trittiford Mill Pool Update - Mandarin Duck

A lovely Surprise at the start of November was a Mandarin Duck on Trittiford a beautiful female I was over the moon felt like a kid at xmas a Trittiford tick for me.
Managed to get a few photos but the sun was very bright, also there was a Wigeon another Trittiford Tick :)
The Mandarin stayed about a week which was nice also the Little Egrets are back at Old Mill pond and different locations up the River Cole :) Such stunning birds I just love them.
Also some very showy Tufted Ducks on Old Mill Pond love these too :)
