Long-Tailed Duck

A trip up to the Barrow Gurney Reservoirs today with my mate Ken in hope that the weather would stay fine as we were looking for a male Long-Tailed Duck and a Black-Throated Diver . We got there and walked around so that we could look into pit 3 and we soon found the Black-Throated Diver but there was no sign of the duck as yet , so we carried on walking around the reservoir when some Common Teal flew past us and in with them was the Long-Tailed Duck , it flew around for a short while before it came to rest on pit 1 and we got great views of this superb looking male bird and as this is a quite rare sight to see a male bird in the South West of England we just enjoyed seeing it in all its splendid appearance .
