The morning started with a mad dash to try and get film of a possible Y.L.Gull on the ice. We have yet to scrutinise the footage and I have some doubts. At the same time a year tick for the res. was added in the form of a smart male Pintail. Not a duck that we get very often on the res. In total 9 duck species were present including a single Goldeneye and the loyal juv. Scaup. On the walk back from enjoying a splendid pint of Ped. at the Thatched in Stanton, 9 Snow geese x ? in the fields to the north of Stanton lane.
