A trip up to the Greylake RSPB Reserve in Somerset to look for a Baikal Teal a bird that I have never seen before . The weather was awful with falling rain most of the time . We got into the hide and was told the bird was showing but it was very distant , but we managed to get onto it with a bit of help from other birders but it was asleep for most of the time and only put its head out a few times .
The main thing that stood out was the vertical white stripe which can be seen in my photo and an all dark under tail coverts .
I know the picture is not the best but what with the distance and the bad weather beggars cant be choosers but I thought I would post it anyway lol .
