More of Chew today. The drake Goosander was again in Herriotts channel, this time he was with an eclipse drake Red-breasted Merganser. There were at least 6 Dunlin showing on the mud from Herriotts bridge, along with 3 Golden Plover and a Black-tailed Godwit. I decided to go to Priddy, just for a chance of maybe catching up with some Crossbills. As it turned out, i was in luck! 2 males & a female flew over not long after we arrived, a couple of Siskins also flew over.
