Great posts earlier today from Rob and Gary. Duck count this a/m at Llangorse showed that >50% of the duck have now left. Only Wigeon numbers keeping up with 246 still; only one Pochard, 77 Tufted, 32 Goldeneye. Foraging activity of 216 Coot and kleptoparasitism by Wigeon and Gadwall (49) is probably what is keeping those dabblers interested. 2 Shelduck, pr Pintail, Mandarin, 20 Lapwing, 2 GWE and 3 LEgrets present. Popped over to Talybont Reservoir afterwards to see Rob's fine juv Gt Northern Diver. Fine indeed.
