This drake Ring-necked Duck has been at Wimbleball Lake for a while, but this is the first time I've seen it. The attraction of a whole load of white-winged gulls in the roost was too good to miss!

What a cracker! This Red-flanked Bluetail at Marshfield did show very well, but it doesn't follow that it was easy to photograph. It wasn't!

If at first you don't succeed, try, try and try again. So third time lucky for the Brixham White-billed Diver (top). I decided to have lunch at Brixham and was most surprised to see the diver right in the harbour next to the lifeboat. I'd spent hours here previously looking at a distant blob! Other divers were showing amazingly well too - shame I only had an hour!
