Ring-necked duck still present all day today - although generally distant at the top of D. Many thanks to Steve Routledge for finding the bird first thing and then taking the time to re-locate for others later on. He sent us this shot of the bird on a rare occasion it was not asleep:
here. The lesser scaup'esque hybrid was also present - sleeping pic here:
One final note - you may notice we have the Deciphering Ducks event on Sunday at 1.30pm. Just an advance warning that although we have plenty of interesting ducks to decipher - the forecast weather may hinder this - particularly if we get stuck at Tophill! So be prepared for a last minute cancellation - we'll announce it on here and twitter if that has to be the case.
