Bowling Green Marsh

Long-Tailed Duck showing very close to the hide at 10:30 this morning to compliment Nick potters blog 7 x Greylag Greese, a pair of Pintails,  several pairs of Widgeon, and Shovelers one Snipe in with the Avocets, a Couple of Grey Herons sheltering under the western hedgerow. A pair of Pochard, female with what looks like a blue numbered ring on the top part of its beak. Too far away to really confirm what it is. Maybe someone can look for it and confirm. What ever it is was really irritating the duck at 12:00 today.
