Black-necked Grebe at Farmoor
16 May - A quick visit to Farmoor despite the cloudy weather, and the summer-plumaged Black-necked Grebe was close in to the west bank of F2 and gave obliging photo opportunities. Hirundines, Swifts and Common Terns feeding close over the reservoir in the adverse weather but no waders on the causeway. A quick check at Eysey flood revealed that the water is drying up, but still 6 Ringed Plovers, 2 Dunlin and 2 Little Ringed Plovers present.
