A long walk early this morning along the Plym River resulted in 6 drakes and 5 female Mandarin Ducks, a female Goosander, 100’s Redwings & 4 Crossbills flying over.

In the late afternoon at Slapton Ley both drake Ring-necked Duck & drake Lesser Scaup were still present, along with 3 Great White Egrets and a Firecrest. A non-birder showed me a photo they’d taken from here earlier in the day of a female Lesser Scaup as well, but I couldn’t locate it as the light was fading (4.15pm).
