A chance visit to Decoy Lake Shapwick at lunchtime today Thurs.revealed that the Ring Necked Duck that was on Noah’s yesterday had moved here. Almost certainly the same bird, today much closer, showing muddy brownish feathers rear of flanks, not a full adult presumably.
A drake Ring Necked Duck on Noah’s Lake Shapwick this morning ( photo’s obtained). Again difficult viewing because of Marsh Harrier activity constantly moving the 1500 or so duck present! No Sign of Whoopers up until 1430 when I left
