Thanks to Neill Hunt for the following pics and information:
Drake Green Winged Teal has been showing rather well at Marshside today,
right outside the hide, (sandgrounders).
This is reasonably unusual as
normally when they do occur they hide themselves miles away at the back of
the marsh, so to see one this well is very good indeed.
The duck is an American vagrant to Britain and this individual is about the 20th to have
occured at Marshside.
Also present today were appox 46 avocets and 4 Scaup
amongst the usual stuff.
