Long Tailed Duck

We went to Pugneys this week, Friday the 19th of November, we set off from Huddersfield on a sunny morning arriving at Pugneys in thick fog and were unable to see the lake but not to be disheartened we set off in hope of finding the Long Tailed Duck but it wasn’t to be but Grey Wagtail, Goldeneye ♀♂, Tufted Duck, Grey Heron, Mallard, Coot, Black Headed Gull, Lesser Black Backed Gull, Common Gull and Great Crested Grebe were all seen despite the fog. So it was to be that Saturday the 20th was catch up day for “the duck” late afternoon after all the chores were done. On arrival at Pugneys we could see the lake this time, so off we went in search of the duck again. This time we soon found it tucked away in the left hand corner giving us fantastic views.
