Pochards etc

 Female Pochard (in summer the bills are often black)
 Male Pochards (Juvenile birds moult into adult type plumages early in the winter)

The easterly airflow with low cloud continues resulting in some vis mig and new arrivals. Highlights were a first-winter Little Gull, 167 Redwings, 6 Fieldfare, 50+ Lapwing and Pochard numbers also increased to 52 birds.
