Last full day in the UK

Monday 19 August
A friendly Collared Dove Streptopelia decaocto at Rutland Water

My last full day in the UK so I spent the morning at the two reservoirs on the Leicestershire/Rutland border, namely Eyebrook and Rutland Water, the latter still in recovery from the recent three-day British Bird fair which concluded yesterday.

Almost thirty species recorded a Eyebrook with a further ten at Rutland water n my way home to make a final tally of 37.  Highlights must include the gorgeous male hen harrier approaching the first followed by feeding Common Terns, Kingfisher and who would not be impressed with a pair of Ospreys on their Rutland Water nest platform.  And I even had a lovely Red Kite on the way home.
