Kielder Reservoir – April 2015

Home Kielder Reservoir – April 2015

On the 8th April 2015….

Today was a warm bright sunny day. We decided to have a day trip up to Kielder Reservoir. Other than a couple of Chiffchaff’s and up to eight Tree Pipit’s there was not much sign of spring/summer visitors. It was great to find a pair of Crossbill’s however, which are amongst my favorite birds.  Nearby there were over 30 Siskin and a feeding party of five Long-tailed Tits.

Soaring over the reservoir, five Buzzards enjoyed the sunny weather.  Other birds recorded included a single Goosander and a Nuthatch.

The highlight of our trip however involved a Common Lizard which was resting close to the lake.
