Marsworth Reservoirs

We took advantage of a beautifully sunny day to take two walks round the reservoirs with frequent stops for the photographer. It might have been sunny but it started off very cold indeed and the first walk was very chilly especially for the non-photographer who was wearing one less layer and had to wait patiently usually out of the sun.

There were plenty of tufted ducks dipping in and out of the water and some groups of pochards and the occasional grebe. The most interesting pair were red crested pochards which are very unusual in the UK. These may have been escapees from a collection.

This is our last day here. We will pop home briefly in the morning to leave the car and will come back by train ready to move off, maybe tomorrow afternoon.
