Unseasonal Ducks...

Well I say unseasonal, but in recent years July has proved a good month for wandering wildfowl. I once had a flock of Pochard fly in off the sea during a heavy rain shower in this month - and they are a true patch rarity.

Anyway today's oddities were two Gadwall at Lower Bruckland Ponds, and then these that dropped in out of nowhere...

Tufted Ducks

They only stayed for about 30 seconds, before flying off back west. In this brief post I must also mention the Little Ringed Plover on Black Hole Marsh early yesterday morning, as amazingly it was my first of the autumn!
