Queen Mother Reservoir (15th December 2012)

On finding out that there were going to be day permits on the gate I made my way to Queen Mother Reservoir and paid £3 to twitch the bird.

I made my way round the reservoir and eventually reached the bird - a Buff-bellied Pipit.  This bird was extremely confiding, running around the edge of the reservoir feeding ignoring the crowd of birders sitting on the wall photographing it.  Even though it was so close it was quite difficult to photograph because it was mostly on the move.

Also round the reservoir were a couple of Goldeneye, a Red-necked Grebe in amongst a small flock of Great Crested Grebes and a Long-tailed Duck feeding nearby.
