Twitching morning

I don’t go after the rare birds very often and I didn’t today but it just so happened that I was in the right place and somebody was there to point them out,

I’m not good on gulls but this is a bonapartes gull from America – pretty lost obviously.

A shoveler

Scaup, a very pretty duck among the tufted ducks but with a grey back and a green shine on it’s head.

That’s it, I don’t do twitching, ticking off lists- humph,  an interesting day by the lake though.
