Staines Reservoir - inland estuary

11 species of wader at Staines this morning, Ebird list here. Met another birder called David Campbell (there's two of them out there!) and good to catch up with Franco.

Here's a few pics:

 90+ Ringed Plover and over 50 Dunlin today. Gives some kind of indication of the number of waders that fly over London and only come down if conditions are right.

 Black-necked Grebe (or Eared Grebe according to Ebird), Coot and Tufted Duck
