Covenham Reservoir 28/05

1st Visit to my patch Covenham Reservoir for the first time in a while in hope of greenshank, little stint and sanderling. 2 year ticks and 2 covenham ticks. I ended up dipping on Little Stint and Sanderling. I managed Greenshank Cov and year tick. Also I found a Wood Sandpiper only my second ever 1st for Cov and year tick :) Not much else aroun really. the reservoir was still no wind at all it was freaky being there silent at times. Also on route I found a Dead female Sparrowhawk
