This afternoon at the wetland reserve boardwalk the female Ring-necked Duck was on show, although a scope was needed as it was about halfway along the stretch of water. Also the 2ndW Caspian Gull found yesterday by Gareth Stamp, was out in the bay [scope definitely needed!]. Fortunately Gareth turned up and got me on to it – pure snowy white head and long parallel-sided bill and some grey on the upper parts. Couple of noisy images below [the light was fading] to give some idea. The second image is cropped from the first and post processed a fair bit!
