Again, an after 6th form visit to Sheepwash urban park was in order, with my co-sheepwash patcher the GORNAL BIRDER (with his new blog).
As we were walking around the pool it became obvious that there wasnt much of note, however while scanning near the 'sand martin bank', i picked out a duck.
An eclipse drake WIGEON!
we decided to head around to the raised patch where we were treated to much closer views with the light behind us, giving great photo and video opporotunities!
It was the first i have ever seen at the park, and a very nice addition,
However, the only other birds of note were 3 Female TEAL, which somehow always were on the other side of the pool where ever we were standing!
