Brockholes Wetland - 16th August 2009

Just an hour down at Brockholes tonight which brought a possible pair of Scaup. They were molting so not 100% but the Male had a dirty grey back and no tuft was present so both Reece and I were in agreement with Mike. Just a single Kestrel hunting, 2 Teal, over 50 Coot and even more Mallard. No sign of the Garganey but it has been reported today so was probably amongst the Mallard, also reported today were 3 Shoveler, 2 Redshank and a Greenshank.
No sign of any waders whilst we were there until we headed for the car and 2 Whimbrel flew around the main pool before heading over to Pit No 1.
