Thanks to Mike Bird for sending me these shots of the Ruddy Shelduck at Marshside - conditions were grim this afternoon, but Mike not only saw it, but managed to get pix, which is more than I've managed so far!
Explains Mike: "Ruddy Shelduck on Marshside Two this afternoon. Poor pictures due to distance and rain".
At least you can still see what it is Mike - thanks again.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
