Wise Birding Holidays
Monday, 1 December 2014
A late afternoon visit to the scrapes this afternoon was definitely worthwhile, despite the dreary grey sky, as I finally connected with the female Red-crested Pochard that was first seen on 16th November but until today, had only been seen very briefly on two previous occasions. Really not sure where it is hiding in between its visits to the scrapes - maybe Bicton Lake?? The Teal x Wigeon hybrid was also present in with the Eurasian Wigeon flock and interesting to see its wing pattern - the first time I have managed to get a photo of it in flight.
