Report. Andrew Carey. 30th November 2010
"Quite heavily frozen at about 11.15 am, but some interesting ducks on the odd patches of clear water:
60+ teal, 4 widgeon, several gadwall and 2 goosander. I think they had hooked beaks, and they certainly had clealy defined neck lines at the bottom of the red marking as opposed to merganser with their straight bills and no clear line. I shall pop down later and hope they come closer, to try and get a picture."
Thanks for the report Andrew.
Things are hotting up in these Arctic conditions.
