Terns and aythyas

hybrid Aythya

After checking the patch again this morning (which provided a nice surprise in the form of 3 Golden Plovers, a patch tick for me and the 3rd record for the site) I made my way to Staines Reservoirs to get Black Tern for my London list which proved successfull. I couldn't stay long to check it out more properly, i.e. waiting to see the bill etc, but I found this Aythya hybrid on the north basin.
