Arrived at the scrape at about 9.30 this morning to check what’s about. 60+ Teal is a good count, drake Pochard on Wrafton Pond and 54 Black-tailed Godwits including the colour ringed individual seen last autumn also 2 Curlew. A slightly different Duck attracted my attention and fortunately I had the telescope which revealed an immature drake GARGANEY. I quickly called Sue Bruce and Andy Lansdell who both arrived to admire it. It was still there when I left the reserve at 12.30. Female Marsh Harrier also seen over Sherpa Marsh.
