A Nap Hand

At the last minute we decided to go and have a quick look at Par Beach Pool and surrounding area.
I doubt we had great expectations but you can never tell what is in store.
At the pool I was counting the Canada Geese and Angie was in conversation with a local couple when after thirty C.G's I spied four little black and white jobs..........Tufted Ducks at the the local *Duckstop*, refuelling and a having a lazy wash and brush up.
Overhead flew a Kestral and at the waters edge a Little Egret fished.
A Nice start.
Next a Jay flew between the trees giving another patch tick.
A fluttering in the trees turned out to be another patch tick ...a welcome and really badly photographed Goldcrest.
The reedbed provided another patch tick and also a Lifer for me when the hoped for Ceti's Warbler turned out to be a Reed Warbler,
After seeing a young Reed Bunting on the ground and Willow Warbler (another patch tick ) in the trees we stayed at the poolside all evening hoping for better photographs of the birds we had seen.
