Hanningfield Resevoir

Working in Brentwood, Hanningfield is not to far away so i popped over there this morning as Black terns were reported last night.

No Black Terns for me but i did manage a Ruff at the far end hide over looking the fishing lodge along with getting in some more Gull ID this time on Juvenile Great Black Backed & Lesser Black Backed.

Within the woodland area though i also managed a new life tick - a Treecreeper; a lovely little bird with white underneath and mottled brown top and black down turned bill

Also a year tick in the form of a Coal Tit, thought i had one of them already but apparently not.
