Slavonian Grebe

Finally.... something worth posting! This Slavonian Grebe (one of two on the reserve) has been giving great views on Burrowes pit throughout the week, often swimming close to the bank just below the visitor centre. Two Chiffchaff showed well in Lydd wood on the way to Scotney pit, where the Long tailed Duck flew into view and proceeded to feed close into the bank. As nice a bird as it may have been, the best sight of the day went to the group of 11 Smew (8 redhead and 3 drakes) swimming and diving together in front of Scott hide late afternoon.
