Ring necked duck reported again this morning from the Tor View Hide at Ham wall on the east side (the Glastonbury Tor side). First report was that it was distant but a later report suggested it had come in quite close and was showing well.

The Ring necked duck is NOT ringed! It was standing on the small raft just south of the west facing blind on Walton west yesterday . This enabled its legs to be checked so perhaps it’s not a collection escape!

Not a sighting, but I’ve just been sent a photo of the drake Ring Neck Duck taken mid week on Loxton’s showing, very clearly, the ring around the base of the birds neck, it’s coloured brown, from whence the bird derives it’s name. Not usually visible.  I have seen a few Ring Necks, including the present one and I’ve still yet to see it!

Present this morning near VP2 but in pool on the other side of the main track.

Plenty of Bitterns booming but only one brief sighting.

The Ring-necked Duck this morning (Tuesday) still at Ham Wall in front the seat on the north side of the main drain just beyond the path to the Avalon Hide - the area that was frequented by the Dusky Warbler.

From the posting time, the above must refer to Saturday. It was still there on Sunday - close to the Tor Hide but frustratingly 3/4 hidden by reeds when I saw it!

At 17.00 this afternoon the male Ring-necked Duck was with c. 20 Tufted Ducks in the channel on the west side of Walton Heath at Ham Wall, giving much closer views than it did on Glastonbury Heath

Ring-necked duck showing well today in the above location at Ham Wall
