First lifer of 2016



A couple of crappy record shots of a female Ring Necked Duck at Onuma this morning. A lifer though (thanks to Osamu for the info)..............

It was very dark and it didn't come close, just sitting on the distant ice with the Mallards. It did come closer when we went back in the afternoon but it was in the middle of a raging blizzard and photos were out of the question. Hopefully it'll stick around for the winter and it performs well in sunnier weather.............

Also around were 3 Smew, a lone White Tailed Eagle, 50 or so Whooper Swan, 3 Pintail, 10 or so Coot...............
