Red-crested Pochards

First day back at work and a lunchtime cycle ride to see yesterday's Scaup at Ferry Meadows. This appears to have gone but there were 3 male and a female Red-crested Pochard on the ice-free part of Gunwade Lake along with a single male Goldeneye and masses of common wildfowl. A Kingfisher dashed across over the Mound and a Grey Wagtail was on the north shore.
