Not a brilliant picture as the bird was a long way away and the light was not brilliant.
After a few minutes I left, intending to return later, when most people had gone home. I walked down to the Ousefleet hide to find very little water, and fewer birds, but 4 ponies.
Marshland hide was my next stop, but all I could see was black headed gulls, no wonder this hide was empty.
Xerox hide was still full so I moved on to First hide. Not a lot of birds to see on the scrape, but good views of marsh and montagu's harriers flying over the distant reedbed.
From Townend hide I could see two spotted redshanks and a greenshank. Sorry about the pictures, but the birds were a fair distance away.
We watched the bird fly around and it appeared to land in front of Singleton hide. Karl set off in the hope of seeing the bird and I followed after having eaten my tea.
The duck had not landed in front of the hide, so we did not know where it had flown to.
However it was a pleasant afternoon out.
