    Plenty of Goosanders out today with this lady in with them.
    Also 4 Little Grebes!

    Great shots.

    The duck is actually a Red-breasted Merganser (note the red eye, straight –not hooked– bill tip).

    Great images on your site, by the way– particularly the Lune ones!

    Thank you Dan!
    Yeah – I noticed the difference straight away when she was in with the others! Couldn’t see a male or any others, just the Goosanders!

    Ah thank you very much! 🙂 It’s a challenge at times but getting to be worth it!

    Single Fieldfare chuckling away first thing this morning on Mill Lane, Halton. They appear to have been few and far between so far in 2021. Then again I’ve been to few places in 2021 so far!

    Cheers

    I was thinking I haven’t seen any, but I’ve only been out a couple of times myself!

    Two female Goldeneye on the Lune today, some other sort of ducks flew by but couldn’t see what they were! I was joined by a little Wren, and a male Goosander 🙂
    Other sightings (apart from mallards):
    Buzzard, 2 Dippers, Heron and Cormorant fly over, Goosanders, 2 Oystercatchers flying over, and 2 Little Grebes and I think thats it.

    Yesterday, lots of Lapwings in a field coming into Caton!
