Out for a duck

Nipped down the coast for a couple of hours this morning - south-easterly winds, mist and rain, so it looked promising. Loads of Redwings and Song Thrushes piling in off the sea, plus a distant owl sp. that was either Long- or Short-eared. A few Bramblings as well, and luckily I was at Torness just after a Yellow-browed Warbler was found. Good views as well!

Back at ther reserve this afternoon - hoaching in wildfowl! 350 Wigeon, 180+ Teal, 90 Mallard, 3 Pintail, 3 Shoveler, 24 Barnacle Geese and a good few Pink-feet around. Gosford Bay had a few Slavonian and Red-necked Grebes as well as 30 Long-tailed Ducks.

Not bad for a manky day!
