Redhead at the res

The res has been heaving with numbers of birds recently including good gull counts (up to 400+ black-headed gulls), good great-crested grebe counts (40+), large numbers of mandarin (at least 10) and a fine immature redhead goosander that' been occupying the northern end of the res since 18th November:

Goosander: Andy Grinter
Goosander, Chard res: R. Harris

Another nice local surprise was this black redstart feeding around a manure heap in the fields close to my house this morning. Poor quality frame grab from about 5 seconds of video:
