I just couldn't drag myself out of bed this morning!!
I ended up at Hanningfield Reservoir an Essex Wildlife Trust reserve.
I stopped on the causeway. The usual collection of ducks and gulls. The ducks included Ruddies!!
My eye though soon turned to this pair of hooligans!
There was a big flock of Long Tails in the car park.
Blue & Great Tits in the woods. And I found a Great Spotted Woodpecker.
In the meadow was a group of Greylags. Someone reported a White Front but I never saw it. Then again it could have flown before I got there!
This little chap was hiding!
The view from point hide. It was very windy!!
A few female goldenye and I "found" a male.
Lots of Pied Wags on the shore front as well as Chaffinches and Starlings.
This little chap was VERY obliging.
