Rutland Water on 2nd August 2009

Another tun of duty on Osprey watch at Rutland Water took me to Shallow Water and Waderscrape hides on the Lyndon side of the reserve. At Shallow Water I had my first sighting of Golden Plover for the secod half of the year. On the way to Waderscrape I put up some young Pheasants. I do think the marking on these youngsters is rather special.
At Waderscrape hide the Water Rails were showing well.

I'm pleased to report that the anonymous spam problem seems to be solvable without using word verification. I'm now just using the 'Registered Users - includes OpenID' option in Blogger settings, and I'm not getting any spam - touch wood! I've also not received any contact from people saying that they are no longer able to make comments.
