Bosherston Lily Ponds - eastern arm

An interesting selection of birds present along the eastern arm of Bosherston Lakes this morning, including a Firecrest, several Goldrests and at least two Chiffchaffs in the trees near the boathouse: the Firecrest was feeding in the ivy covering the trees.  Also an interesting selection of ducks including what appeared on size and shape (the light wasn't great) to be a juv/female Scaup, a female Tufted Duck (associating with the Scaup), Shelduck (not common at this location), several Goldeneye, Shoveler, Teal, Gadwall and Mallards.  Last but not least, one, possibly two, very active Kingfishers.
