A very handsome male Long-tailed Duck was seen yesterday with the group i visited a couple of days ago so I thought I would try to find him.

The strong winds have died down and apart from twenty or so Mallards and a lone pair of Canada Geese everyone else seems to have moved on.  However, I persevered and managed to winkle out a couple of well separated females, but not a sign of the male.  Ah well, another year maybe.
