Working in Ashford, I was familiar with the Lakes but had never made a visit to the site. After Neil Burt kindly publicised his find, the two us headed off to add Ring Necked Duck to our Kent List. A relatively easy find on the Everglades when doing the family holiday in Florida, the sun this afternoon was determined to make this a challenge.
There was a smattering of other birders all well spread but we did find the bird and shuffled around for better views. The obligatory record shot was taken at some distance into the sun.
