Willow Warbler and Long-tailed Duck

November 3rd, 2012, by far the latest Willow Warbler i've seen in the UK
and present for some time in the car park at Stocks Reservoir. The bird
seemed to have some kind of problem with it's throat and was constantly
gaping, possibly explaining it's prolonged stay.
The Long-tailed Duck showed quite well from the old hide and only my
second record for East Lancs. A small skein of Pink-feet flew over and
and the afternoon was rounded off nicely with a ringtail Hen Harrier on
surrounding moorland.
