A Garganey!

Another dull, cold morning but a walk around the Lagoon soon revealed that the Black Necked Grebe is still present and the reported, somewhat elusive Garganey showed up well. It seems quite 'jumpy' flying from one end of the lagoon to the other, then flying again but eventually settled down quite happily with a group of the resident Mallards on the north side of the lagoon, preening. This is a really nice bird to see and the first one I have seen at this location. (I must try and get a photo but I didn't have my camera this morning and it was just too far away to get a decent shot)
