Pec on the patch

A Pec on the patch, fantastic! Not a patch patch tick but a cracking bird for the pools. Found by Tim and Janet Dean (ta for the call!). Was right in front of the hide when I arrived (complete with massive hangover!), but due to the huge twitch (10 people) I couldn't digi-scope it, but got this on 10X optical.

Not a bad start, add to that an Otter feeding in front of the hide, a kingfisher, 2 ruff, a spoonbill on the budge fields and 6 red-throated divers offshore, not a bad haul. I haven't seen kingfisher on the patch in at least three year so that was nice, pec's are as common!

Some nice shots of a teal and a peacock too.

What, Kingfisher at Druridge. Supressor! Pecs must outnumber them 10 to 1 there. Nice otter pics by the way.
