A Pied Billed Grebe and Pallas's Warbler jaunt

Two years ago I saw my 1st Pied Billed Grebe in the UK in Manchester, with filthy twitcher Jono Lethbridge.  As you can see below it showed well!

Yesterday I saw my 2nd Pied Billed Grebe in the UK, as you can see there are no photos.  It did not show well. It stated around 150 yards away and asleep for most of the time.

The bird stayed at the back of the water. Pretty good scope views were had but no chance of even getting a digi-scoped shot. Also on site 2 fly by Bittern (again distant).

On the way home we stopped in Berks to go for the elusive wintering Pallas's Warbler. It was hard work but we enjoyed some good but brief views. Unfortunately, the pics below are scrapping the bottom of a very blurry deep barrel.

Also seen of note up to 6 Red Kite and a fly by Kingfisher.
