Mega Dip (5th April)

After sticking around for about three weeks I managed to secure a lift kindly offered by Dominic Pia (A Staines Res patcher).  We set off relatively early and arrived after first light to the noise of Cetti's Warblers, singing Blackcaps and Chiffchaffs, we'd arrived at Fen Drayton Lakes for the Baikal Teal!

We made our way over to Moore Lake where we expected it to be lingering as usual but it was a little concerning when, on arrival, there was reportedly no sign.  We didn't worry too much but as the day wore on and there was still no sign our concern did start to increase and by early afternoon we had no choice but to leave and dip.  Despite spending the several hours wandering around the sight getting really exhausted all I could find was a drake Scaup...

Once back home again, I collapsed on the sofa, woke a couple hours later only to find out it had been refound a couple miles up the road!  That was painful.
