Astbury Mere as been exceptionally quiet of late un till a text at 11-30 from Andy Godwin saying drake Common Scoter now at Astbury . It took me ten minutes to dust my camera off and I was there watching it some 150mts out in the pouring rain , not ideal for photography in fact not ideal for anyone to be out in this really . My chances of getting anything on camera was slim , these are the times you envy the birders with digiscope set up . Apparently the birdlines are saying quite a few Common Scoters are being reported at inland waters today. Thanks to Andy for the shout. Below are two very distant shots of our drake Common Scoter from a very wet Astbury today.Also two Common Tern's at 16-30 ( J Swan ).
