A sleeping female Pintail. Easy to over look.
Dave Wright did very well to spot this female Pintail that was quietly resting with a pair of Mallard today. This species is not often recorded away from the larger reservoirs such as Rutland and Eyebrook so a good find. Other recent additions to the local patch list have included a female Brambling coming to next doors feeder and a Water Rail near the wooden bridge. A pair of Kingfishers and a pair of Little Owl are indications that the breeding cycle is commencing.
