Walthamstow Reservoirs

A cool partly cloudy morning with a brisk breeze blowing across the reservoirs.  The were plenty of Sand Martin feeding low over No.4 maybe around 70-80 birds there with good numbers of Common Swift.  A few House Martin were mixed in with them.

A Peregrine flew low over No.3 that appeared to have a broken leg but it safely landed onto one of the distant electricity pylons.

Three (2 adults and one cub) Red Fox were seen around the complex, one which sat low sheltering from the breeze.


A single Common Sandpiper fed along the edge of East Warwick.


On returning back towards the gatehouse, a female Red-Crested Pochard was seen roosting near to the large island on No.1.  A welcome patch first.
