The Stanwick GP Ring-necked Duck

This afternoon Steve Fisher found Northamptonshire’s 4th Ring-necked Duck at Stanwick Gravel Pits. A female, it spent a couple of hours in the north-east corner of the A45 Lay-by Pit before flying to the island at around 16.15. Perhaps this is the recent long-stayer from Eyebrook Reservoir in neighbouring Leicestershire. Hopefully it will still be present tomorrow.
