Blashford Birds Walk on Water

Dropped into the Tern hide at lunchtime in the vain hope of seeing an early sand martin, I saw at least 13 goldeneye including five adult drakes but not  a lot else. In fact there are rather few wildfowl about now and this female pochard was one of the few even vaguely close to the hide.

The only bird of note that was reported was the ferruginous duck, although nobody actually on site mentioned it, news came in via national rarities sites late in the day.
