Vertical Stripe

Talking to the warden at Caerlaverock WWT reserve I enquired of the Green winged Teal that had been frequenting Folly Pond. We were on The Solway Geese Tour and the American cousin of our own Eurasian Teal had been on the reserve a number of weeks. He said the bird had taken to sulking amid the course grass and was not been seen frequently, if at all. Our chances of seeing him were slim. We resigned ourselves for a wait.

As we walked into the hide there was a small close flock of male Teal in front of us and guess what … the Green winged was amongst them … showing extremely well.
