Tring Reservoirs - 20.2.15

Mediterranean Gull
Another visit in the hope of some new patch ticks did produce the goods. I started off at Wilstone and had a flock of 24 Golden Plover fly over as did a Little Egret. But it was the gull roost that produced the first good bird. In fact the near summer plumaged Mediterranean Gull that was found by Dave Bilcock was my first of this species at Tring! After watching it for a while I headed over to Marsworth in hope of the elusive Bittern. 7 Corn Bunting were seen to roost with c.50 Starling and a Water Rail squealed from the reed bed. Again the Bittern didn't play ball but a Woodcock flew over the top of the reed bed and vanished. This was also my first record for Tring.
