Long-tailed Duck

Lade - 0800hrs - Mild, dry, cloudy s2 - Wandered down to Kerton Road pit first thing but nothing much to report on the water. En-route a trickle of Mipits, Skylarks, Goldfinches and a Redpoll overhead. The Long-tailed Duck remained on north pit along with a couple of Goldeneyes. Several Marsh Harriers hunting over by the airfield, plus 2 Kestrels and a Common Buzzard.
