But only at the res, nowhere else...yes, this morning I woke really early and decided a visit to Chard res was in order in the hope of securing some footage of the kingfishers but they were not to be seen. Instead a juvenile redshank had dropped in overnight and had managed to find the only bit of muddy shoreline available to feed on and when it was getting harassed by coots, it took refuge on the sticks. Too far away to ever get good photos but I took a bit of video - click the image to view:

There are usually one or two annually but not always so. It still remains an accidental visitor at the res.
