Literally minutes after posting this morning about the lack of ‘spring’ I got a call telling me about a flock of one of my favourite spring migrants. I jumped in the car and things were feeling even more spring like as my Levellers CD kicked in and started shouting ‘What a beautiful day’ at me. Must have been a sign...
I parked next to my least favourite supermarket, Aldi’s, and walked across the road to be met by this stunning sight!
Unlike most other UK duck species, Garganey are just summer visitors. They aren’t that common so I always jump at the chance to have a look and a flock of five on Radipole were just irresistible!
Well done those of you who managed to count just four in the photo... Good job!
