A mornings outing to Farmoor in Oxfordshire then Queen Mother Reservoir in Berkshire. Ephraim was serving a one trip suspension for bad joke telling. (Something about a zoo with no dogs!). So it was Brendan, Paul and myself that made the trip. Farmoor was our first stop. No Falcated Duck but we did manage; Slavonian Grebe (2) and a single Brambling. Then over to Queen Mother Reservoir. The Buff-bellied Pipit showed really well. Also here Long-tailed Duck and Peregrine.
Pics below; Slavonian Grebe at Farmoor then next two Buff-bellied Pipit at QMR.
