Great Crested Grebe
What a fantastic place Tophill Low NR is for birds. Finally got close views of a Kingfisher, but it was sat under some trees so the light conditions were not ideal (you carn't have everything). At present "D" Reservoir is being drained creating a haven for wading birds. The list of the day is as follows: Greenshank, Dunlin, Bar Tailed Godwit, Snipe, Green Sandpiper, Common Sandpiper, Lapwing, Grey Heron, Little Egret, Marsh Harrier, Common Buzzard, Kingfisher, Gadwall, Mallard, Shoveler, Teal, Tufted Duck, Ruddy Duck, Little Gull, Reed Warbler, Cormorant and Great Crested Grebe.
