What a difference the rain makes

What a difference the rain makes........

I returned to SHARDELOES LAKE this evening after the rain stopped with Graham Smith and the NORTHERN POCHARD flock had increased to a phenomenal 134 individuals - a total more than the rest of Bucks counted together, with 75% of them adult drakes.

Remarkably, there were also 4 NORTHERN SHOVELERS at the west end (2 pairs), 4 Gadwall, 9 Little Grebes, 2 Tufted Duck, 2 Mute Swans, 2 Carrion Crows and a Reed Bunting

Also, 2 stag Muntjac Deer at dusk feeding at the edge of the lake
