One of two female goldeneye on the open water and a couple of teal with a lapwing sunning themselves in a corner of the Church Pond.
Snipe at the edge of the nearby reedbed. Another birder saw as many as 9. This is a favourite spot for these plump waders.
Not the best images but a rather special spot, my first reasonable sighting of a kingfisher so far in 2021. I’m pretty sure it is a male. The female has orange ‘lipstick’ on the lower bill. 😎
Here are the answers to the RSPB quiz in yesterday’s posting. How many did you get? I was stumped by 8 and I needed help with 9 (pear – egg – grin). More of a groan than a grin!
