Spent this morning at the farmlands (1 Glaucous Gull, 2 Caspian Gull, 1 adult Med Gull and missed the first Wheatear of the year) and then set off for Holly's stopping off at Staines Res on the way (3 Black-necked Grebe, 2 Slavonian Grebe, 1 Scaup, 1 Black-tailed Godwit, 1 Oystercatcher and 2 LRP).
The plan is to make stopping off at Staines a regular thing through the Spring on the way to and back from Oxford.
