Patch Ring-neck!

After hearing that was no sign of the Ring-necked Duck at Hauxley this morning we decided to head to Chevington instead as there was perhaps a chance the bird would have relocated there instead of back to the USA...

A few minutes later I was scanning the Tufties and there was a really smart drake Ring-necked Duck! Not only a patch tick but a county tick for me as well! Other birds around this morning included 20 Whooper Swans, 12 Scaup (5 on south pool), 7 Red-breasted Mergansers, the Slavonian Grebe and a few more Pochards and Tufted Ducks than usual.
