Wed 16th February, The Lakes

Fine views of 3 male and 7 female Goosander on Lake E, that actually didn't fly off for once - usually they are unbelievably wary.  Unfortunately I didn't have time to paint them as I was on my lunch hour, and it takes about 50 minutes just to do the whole circuit...
But still it went some way toward making up for the dismal depression of spending the whole of yesterday desperately trying to see the Oriental Turtle Dove which has been re-discovered in Chipping Norton.  It hadn't been seen since last December 18th.
