Back on the ground on the home patch today at Par Beach Pool. Things are definitely looking up with a Ring-necked Duck, 7 Shovelers, 10 Tufted Ducks, 2 Little Grebes and the possibly now resident Black Swan.
The Ring-necked Duck was giving distant views but perhaps he will be more cooperative tomorrow. Is this the same long staying duck from earlier in the yeat? Certainly the books suggest that they often reappear at the same location from year to year.
