Went to the Avalon Marshes today with 2 friends. Started off at Westhay which did not have many species or even numbers so debated whether to go to Greylake. Last time we were there, it was very foggy, the Baikal Teal was around and the place was heaving, to the extent that we did not stay long. Today we were pleased to find that the crowds had disappeared but luckily not the Baikal Teal. It was some time before it removed its head from under its wing (even then we could still pick it out – with help initially) but he did give us good views in the end. He was close enough to see through the binoculars but better through a scope.
