Another tale of birding woe

On a day that produced a common yellowthroat, female smew, further news of the Slavonian grebe and the just out of county Dowlais Top Caspian gull the best I could do was a distant ringed Canada goose at Green pool LR. In fairness there were some other interesting reservoir snippets such as a couple of flyover skylark, a rather loud water rail,  male and female goldeneye and good numbers of reed bunting. At times like this I tend to re-emphasise the value of the commonplace - but that's only because I don't see much of the rare these days.
