winter wildfowl

Lewis and I had an hour of window oppurtunity to view Bury and Stockers GP's
parked in the Aquadrome car park and viewed the frozen lake some water was
still available for the ducks mostly.
This particular male Tufted was quite confiding although further away a pair
of Wigeon were a bit dark.
We did a circular walk colne side of Bury lake where a number of Goldeneye were
swimming along the edge of the ice.
We crossed the causeway between Stockers and Bury noting reed bunting and ring
necked parakeets before crossing the canal at Stockers house.
Finally a male blackbird posed on a branch just prior to the car park.
