High Rid Reservoir

Entertaining hour watching the long-staying 2nd W little gull feeding off flies in the corner of the reservoir nearest the entrance gate. More like a tern than a gull in its behaviour, calling to fend off any nearby BH gull and fluttering over the surface of the water (much as terns do). Also a 1st W scaup appeared to be present among the dozen or so tufted ducks.
