It was sunny yesterday morning so despite the heavy frost I shot over to Marsh Lane again getting there at 9.30 AM.It was still sunny but very cold with plenty of ice on the water.

Luckily in the CP hide an eagle eyed birder (Martin) spotted yesterday's Ruddy Shellduck way off in the distance the other side of the river on the flood pane.It was with an Egyptian Goose. 

Moving on to keep warm I  spotted a Cetti's Warbler in the N Causeway hide but it soon dived into the reeds not to be seen again.A Reed Bunting was the only other bird there braving the cold.

Again I had some luck because when I dropped into the River hide both the Egyptian Goose and the Ruddy Shellduck had crossed the river and were not too far away on the western bank of the CP pool.
