Blackhill Quarry

A drake mandarin with c20+ mallard and 2 tufted duck this afternoon. Possibly the bird that was present at the beginning of November but now in full 'adult' plumage. No sign of the scaup today but only one of the 4 pools checked.

Exeter City Centre - a female-type black redstart around the 'Mary Arches' car park made the Christmas shopping a little more pleasant.
