Peregrine. Bill Morton

A lone Ruff was on the flooded grassy areas of No. 5 tank.

200 Tufted Duck flew right over my head from No. 5 and straight out to No. 6 tank in two separate groups. They caught be off guard, I just wasn’t ready for how close and how loud these ducks can be directly overhead. They sounded like a jet and after that I required a roll of toilet paper!

The Lapwing and Golden Plover numbered several hundred strong. The lord and lady Peregrine of Mersey were again perched regal like on the tallest watch tower at Weston Point.
