Garganey: We found this little gem of a nature reserve ran by Northumberland Wildlife Trust where we spotted two drake Garganey.
Isn't it funny sometimes, I have been to Frodsham Marsh, Burton Mere Wetlands and Conwy RSPB reserves in search of Garganey without any luck and I travel over 3 hours away to Northumberland and see two!

We got talking to a nice gent from Newcastle who came down for the Collard Fly then came here, he informed us this place has had a really good rarity list including Purple Heron, this is the website http://www.nwt.org.uk/reserves/druridge-pools check it out guys.
