My plan this morning was to head over to Packwood where the Red-breasted Merganser had been seen on the NT property lake late yesterday evening.However I received a text before I set out telling me that it was again at Marsh Lane on the CP pool.
It was still there with 16 Goosanders when I arrived at 9.30 AM and better still the sun was shining.The plan was then to get some better shots than yesterday's poor efforts.Did the plan succeed then ? No it didn't and this despite trying for well over an hour. In fairness it didn't come close and I had trouble focusing on it.These are my best efforts certainly no keepers.
Here's one I took earlier.On 16th November 2010 at Shustoke reservoir.
