Grab shot of a female Goosander, west over Cromer golf course – a very odd record
Very little happening on my morning walk along the cliffs, that is, until I reached the turf slope. A distant duck flying west along the ridge over the golf course had to be a Mallard at this time of the year…. or was it? A quick look through the bins and it turned into a female ‘sawbill’ – probably a Goosander. The id confirmed by Dave, who also saw it, and later looking at the couple of grab shots I managed to take. A bizarre summertime record, but a welcome addition to the post-lockdown list! In other wildlife news I’ve had my first Broad-bodied Chaser visit our tiny garden pond in the past couple of days.
