Green-Winged Teal pics and video

I spent a few hours on Black Hole Marsh in the hope that the GW Teal would do a close swim-by; there's great potential to get a brilliant pic of it if it stays on the marsh. He stayed distant again for most of the day - although did do one closer approach to Island Hide... Sue Smith timed her visit perfectly as this happened moments after she arrived! By closer, I do not mean close, more like less distant! I took a few snaps and some brief video clips:

(Video is refusing to work at the moment).

There was also a Scandinavian Herring Gull on the Estuary but unfortunately it left 3 mins after I got the message! Turns out I was on the wrong side of the river so it may have been out of sight anyway. The interesting birds can keep on coming...


  1. Cripes, lovely lovely lovely. Do you see the difference in the flank markings? Cracking stuff.

    1. Cheers Brett! Yeah it's even more obvious in the flesh. The white is so strikingly bright!
