A very gloomy start, low cloud and some mist meant it was difficult to make out the far end of the reservoir from the hide. Hopeful of the conditions bringing in rare scarce wildfowl we stayed in the hide and were eventually rewarded when a fine drake Goldeneye flew in and landed close by. An hour and a half later it was joined by a female Scaup, at one point both of them were together. Two useful additions to my patchlist challenge. Also saw the Tawny Owl again at its day roost, being harrased by Jays & Magpies!
