Yank Wigeon

Another trip out to Grindon Lough this morning, this time with success. The lads had the American Wigeon in the scope as I pulled up. Out in the open, resting on the point, it almost immediately swam off, out of view. Luckily for those that had just arrived it soon swam out into open water to show well. While we were standing chatting 18 Pink-footed Geese flew over and 4 Whooper Swan dropped in as I was leaving.

Rufforth for seagulls tomorrow.
