Pitsford update and Sule images


A visit to the Old Scaldwell Road Feeding Station at Pitsford Reservoir with a 'scope this evening provided a few sightings of interest. An eclipse drake Red-crested Pochard was in the mouth of the Walgrave Bay surrounded by hundreds of Gadwall. A Goldeneye and a Little Egret were in the Scaldwell Bay and an adult Yellow-legged Gull was mobile. In addition a Barn Owl was hunting in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton village.

As promised, below are some more images from my excursion to Sule Skerry last week...
