Red-crested Pochard – 16th June

An evening walk around the Lagoons, dodging the showers, produced a sighting of eight Red-crested Pochard on the Slurry Lagoon – five obvious males, one female and two extremely creamy/white individuals.  A small flock of about 70 Starlings were flying over the reed bed looking for somewhere to roost for the night and three Lapwing chicks were feeding between the showers.
