Paul, I went mid morning where I saw a Greenshank, a Graey Heron, 1 Linnet 10 to 20 Meadow Pipit on the area of reservoir bed now exposed including what I thought was a Yellow Wagtail, but which turned out to be a yellowish light buff leucistic Meadow Pipit. On the small reservoir were 6 Pied Wagtails (mostly juveniles) and a Stonechat.
