Ringing off

Whilst it showed well on Sunday unfortunately there have been no further reports of the ring-necked duck since.  2 scaup were seen on Monday - picture from HVWG here:
But no scaup and much fewer ducks in general on the res today.  A few pintail remained - and a drake goosander at dusk tonight was a nice consolation spotted by Andy Marshall. Peregrine over the res on Sunday night with the little gull and a 1st winter lesser black backed gull.  Leucistic wigeon on O was an oddity - HVWG:
Elsewhere pink footed goose on Watton - and the seemingly now reliable woodcock at the wildlife centre - still there today.
