Another trip to Derwent Reservoir last week with John A which turned
out exceptionally well with some great weather and great birds. The
highlight for me was the number of Cuckoos seen and heard and the
Osprey putting in an appearance again.
First Cuckoo sighting of the Day, 2 of them being chased by Meadow Pipit
Then we had another sighting, once again being chased by Meadow Pipit
Half an hour later we had another flyover, once again it being chased by a Meadow Pipit
The pictures this time were a bit more scrappy than the others.
The only decentish shot I got was one of Mipit returning to a tree near us
Quite a good sighting of a Goldcrest too
From the hide we watched the Osprey moving round to different trees but after an hour it headed East up the Reservoir
Finally a couple of early morning landscape shots I took on our way there
