Ranworth Broad, 20 December 2011

With a crisp bright day forecast it was off to Ranworth Broad this morning to check out the rare duck situation. Rather surprisingly the flock of duck weren't on the main broad but on the wide cut running right from the visitor centre towards the river. A scan of the flock revealed the Ferruginous Duck 1st then the Ring-necked Duck a couple of minutes later - bingo! They were a little too distant for photography but as I had a little compact camera with me I did attempt a little digi-scoping. The results below show why I don't do much of that any more!
Also of note - a Nuthatch was by the reserve entrance and a flock of c120 Greenfinches were near nearby Panxworth.
