Male Garganey, Felbrigg Park

This morning I made up a little for my recent run of missed birds by finding, for me at least, a ‘Felbrigg first’, in the form of a superb pair of Garganey, on the water meadow. I was on my way to a meeting and took the scenic route along the middle path to the lake. As I reached the water meadow, I was struck by how few ducks there were – just a handful of Mallard and five Teal, but there on the bank, was a pair of Garganey! There have only been a couple of previous records of this scarce summer visitor at Felbrigg. They were still present this evening.
