Leaving the Hill at 1230, I headed for Napton Reservoir, which was rather quiet. A solitary Sedge Warbler sang out from the reeds for about ten minutes and two Cettis Warblers competed. I spent a while taking photo's of two very obliging Great Crested Grebes and Mute Swan before meeting and chatting with John J on the embankment.
