Out for a duck

It says something when the highlight of a visit to Aldcliffe is the thrilling discovery of a tufted duck 'new-in'! This exciting aythya was loafing around on Freeman's Pools, where there are now also two pairs of mute swan. Phew.
By the Wildfowlers' Pools, I bumped into Steve W where we spied a green sandpiper, 2 little grebes and a drake shoveler. He mentioned that he'd seen a kingfisher there yesterday.
Other than a pair of peregrine over Colloway Marsh, there was little else to report from my post-work visit ...
