Wild Swans and Goldeneye - but no Red-necked Grebe...

Linda and I were supposed to be making a trip down to the Brecks with Sue & Peter, but when we crawled out of bed we discovered that the central heating boiler had gone u/s! This necessitated one of us being at home all day until the service team arrived. Since Linda 'volunteered' to be the one, I decided to go for a bash at the Red-necked Grebe at Filby. Despite a good two hours scanning the two Broads from both of the wooden platforms, neither the grebe nor the recently-present Long-tailed Duck put in an appearance. (Nice to enjoy a chat with fellow cockney ex-patriot Ted!) Lots of beautiful Goldeneye were some compensation.

I drove home via Ludham Airfield, where two groups of Whooper Swans took a bit of finding - they were a mile or so distant from their regular feeding area.
