Tyttenhanger GP's - 17.4.11

A rare sight indeed. No not the pair of Garganey (female asleep) but my son actually enjoying birding!!

A non birding day suddenly turned into one as 2 Garganey were reported at Tyttenhanger! I finished dinner and was amazed when my son said can I come aswell?! Usually when I mention birds he says they are boring! We arrived on site and met Steve Blake and Lee Evans and almost immediately got onto the pair of Garganey though they were being quite elusive prefering to spend most of the time behind the trees and shrubs on the main pit. Eventually they were flushed by a Coot and swam out into the open had a preen and fell asleep just in time for Joan Thompson to see them.
