|Gunners Park Lake|
The air was slightly damp with an irritating mizzle. The light was very poor so any images are rather grainy I’m afraid. On the lake, Mallards topped the numbers chart with a few Mute Swans and Little Grebes. A lone female Common Scoter was a bit unusual but the star of the show was definitely a female Long-tailed Duck. Both the Scoter and the Long-tailed Duck have been here since 20th December so they weren’t that much of a surprise. The surprising thing was they were still here when I was here.
