Dinton Pastures ~ 5th November ~
Another trip to Dinton was made today in hope of seeing the ferruginous duck again but despite careful searching on both Sandford and Lavell's lake the bird was not seen by myself nor anyone else as far as I am aware. We had extremely brief views of a Kingfisher and reasonable views of the many wildfowl around including Wigeon, Shoveler, Pochard, Little Grebe and Great Crested Grebe, just to name a few!! The highlight of the day was the good views we got of the Barn Owl in his box! Hopefully the lack of the fudge duck today does not mean he has left as I know many would like him to stay for the winter.
