Peering through the Gloom!!!

A quick hours watching at Ringstone on the way home is very quickly turning into a half hour and not because the traffic is bad. The poor light over the last 2 evenings has made it difficult to pick out some species and near impossible to give definate counts but this should give you a rough idea:- Thurs 18:15 till last light, 11 Goosander, 17 Mallard, 2 GC Grebe, 1 BH Gull, 4 Lapwings and some unconfirmed wigeon. Tonight approx sametime, 23 Lapwings, 5 Tufted Ducks, 4 Goosander, c25 Canada Geese, 9 unconfirmed Golden Plover in top field, 12 Mallard, 2 GC Grebe and unconfirmed wigeon and teal on far bank. Planning an early morning trip up to hopefully get some confirmation on what may have stayed the night. Here's hoping it's dry and lighter.
