Pennington Flash

In attrocious conditions, poor light and heavy drizzle, I at least managed to get a good look at the garganey which has been moving between Ramsdales and the Spit. Today it was feeding right in front of Ramsdales hide. Also from Ramsdales, two green sandpipers, though these were seen to fly off high shortly after I arrived. On the flash, at least 130 tufted ducks and two common terns.

Garganey. It's not just about the facial stripes, notice also the pale throat.

One for the unwary. A (possibly eclipse male?) teal with an eye stripe, but nowhere near as distinct as the garganey. Notice also the lack of a pale throat.
