Report and photograph. Phil Ouless.

The Ring Necked Duck was still present at Par this afternoon, though keeping well clear of all the commotion around the feeding area.
There was a Bar-Headed Goose sitting on the concrete "partition" at the eastern end of the pond. While watching this one, a Bittern flew up out of the reeds nearby & flew slowly over to the back of the pond.
A handsome drake Shoveler was also was also present today (photo attached)

Thank you for the report and photograph Phil.

Angie and myself were at the Pool around  1600 hrs today. I noticed someone taking photographs at the beginning of the Pool (reedbed end) possibly it was you.
Nice photograph of the Shoveler.

    Down with the word verification, there is no need to put that way, I'm sorry.
