Two visits today, this morning helping to show visitors the ducks and then this afternoon in a flying visit to twitch Tim Jones' Caspian Gull. This morning was very cold c-3c, with the Ings looking stunning, frosting twinkling in the sunshine and c100 Pink-footed Geese went over high north at 9.30am. Two patches of unfrozen water remained. One on the pool held one drake Goldeneye and one Ruff, among the commoner ducks. A Chiffchaff called from willows by the hide. Further out, the injured Whooper Swan was around, plus 21 Shelduck.
