Approx 1040 hrs in a NW'ly gale. Water levels up by a meter plus. A non event in reality; Mallards, 1 Teal, Mallards.
I searched for Pintail In the distance but couldn't see anything obvious and the one contender for male was just a distant blob in the murk. I simply didn't have the gall to backtrack and double check.
I just rcvd a text from BS stating Pintail present at approx 1545 hrs.
Others: pr Bullfinch, LTT, 2/3 Blue Tit, similar Goldcrest, small nr of gulls.
