Had a walk around a very quiet Covenham Reservoir this evening. No terns, very few hirundines & wagtails. The best on offer was Scaup, 2 Common Sandpiper, 2 Barn Owl, 4 Yellow Wagtail. Then halfway round the res I received a call close to 7.45pm of 2 Dotterel at Tetney Marshes, so then it was a brisk walk & then rally stage to Tetney before last light. Fortunately on arrival there was enough light to enjoy these star waders before retiring to the pub to complete the evening.


  1. Nice one Chris, myself and Mr Eades had to go to Manchester yesterday for Dotterel!

  2. I see on your blog the trip to Manchester was well worth it! Stunning close-ups - great birds arent they?
    The Tetney birds haven't been seen since.
