Black Hole Marsh Green-Winged Teal

The Green-Winged Teal remained on Black Hole Marsh seemingly all day again today. It was seen first thing in the morning but then people lost sight of it so it was thought to have flushed. Tim Wright (not to be confused with myself) picked it out on one of the islands again this afternoon, asleep. It had likely been in that spot all day but just hidden by other ducks etc. A few birders/photographers left without spotting it which is a shame. Here's a pic of the bird taken yesterday, right at the back of BHM. Distant but still a rather stunning individual.
