Decided to try my luck at Brasside Pond this morning to see if the Ruddy Shelduck that was reported yesterday was still about.
No luck with that bird, but good views of Goldeneye and a couple of noisy Jays.
I then decided to try my luck at a new site for me, Houghton Gate.
This site proved to be my birding saviour as it produced 300+ Golden Plover, Goosander, Widgeon, Curlew, Teal, Snipe, Redshank, Shelduck and Shoveler.
Depending on the weather, I may try my luck searching for Owls tonight. I know that there are Little Owls near me and I'm hoping that there's a lot more.
