Took a trip down to EGP yesterday for the scaup. It was still on the fishing lake and looking lovely. I got about an hours watching before being turfed out by the bailiffs. It was a great Lifer for me.
Also on site I managed my first swallow of the year, that became four swallows over the canal. Also a male blackcap calling along the canal towpath
