Journey to Holly's

Spent this morning at the farmlands (1 Glaucous Gull, 2 Caspian Gull, 1 adult Med Gull and missed the first Wheatear of the year) and then set off for Holly's stopping off at Staines Res on the way (3 Black-necked Grebe, 2 Slavonian Grebe, 1 Scaup, 1 Black-tailed Godwit, 1 Oystercatcher and 2 LRP). 

The plan is to make stopping off at Staines a regular thing through the Spring on the way to and back from Oxford. 

 First-winter Glaucous Gull 
Adult Mediterranean Gull 
 Black-necked Grebe-  moulting into summer plumage with the breast still to complete
 Slavonian Grebe on left with two Black-necks. Interesting the Slav still in complete winter plumage (the other Slav has started moulting but not very advanced) 
 Male Scaup with Goldeneye and Tufted Ducks 
Little Ringed Plover
