a yank at last!

My first yank of the autumn at Galley arrived in the form of a female ring-necked duck in with the scaup flock on Kilkeran Lake this morning (136) - 17 years to the day since I found my first ever one!


 



 


A tremendously bad record shot of the ring-necked duck on Kilkeran Lake today - any tips Carmo?


 


A few finches were also knocking about, with c.12 chaffinches, c.10 redpoll, and 1 siskin seen around Galley this morning. The juvenile american golden plover and the lesser yellowlegs were seen again at Rosscarbery today.
