Abberton Resevoir

We went back to Abberton again last week as the week before we failed to find the Scaup and Black Necked Grebe. We did find the Smew, Goldeneye, Pintail, Long Tailed Duck but unfortunately most were too far away to get pictures. as were the Scaup we spotted. The Ring Neck Duck seen the previous week had also gone.

Having a good scratch......

At one end of the reservoir causeway is a Heronry and some birds were on nests.

And on the opposite side a little further down the side is a Cormorant nesting site. What do you call a group of Cormorants? If we have a Heronry can we have a Cormorantry?

Just up the road on the way home we spotted this beauty, after seeing Pintail, Long Tailed Duck, Smew, Goldeneye, Shovellers, Tufted Ducks, Gadwall, Herons, Cormorants, Egyptian Geese, Gulls by the hundreds and a few waders.

A great site and visit.
