Shetland To Startop's - 6.10.15

Ring-Necked Duck
While on Shetland news broke of a drake Ring-Necked Duck on Wilstone Reservoir. That would be a nice 3 pointer for the patch challenge if it stuck around. Thankfully it did and so despite being late to bed I was up early to go and see it before the rain arrived. Frustratingly it was sat in the middle of the reservoir at Startops but it was my first male in Herts and my 3rd in the last 5 years! A Lesser Redpoll flew over and a Cetti's Warbler called from the reedbed at Marsworth Res.
