Ring-necked Duck at Holkham

Linda and I had an early breakfast and headed north-west, arriving at Holme around 8.15. Despite a good search we had just one inconclusive glimpse of a possible Blue-tail, so returned east to Holkham. On the way we stopped at Thornham - no Twite, but Rock Pipit and a variety of close common waders were some return.

An hour's trudge up and down Holkham Lake, scrutinizing every Tufted Duck, finally resulted in reasonable views of the Ring-necked Duck - I wonder how many people realise that's Daffy's species?

Bonus bird was a fine (ringed!) Peregrine Falcon near the monument.
