Tuesday was a rather crisp November day, dry and a bit sunnier than Monday. The better weather brought along a drop in temperatures too and Tuesday finished with the coldest average daily temperature this month of 4.2°C.
Sorting out our photographs from Monday’s visit to Old Moor it was noticeably how many of the ducks were paired up. It wasn't until we were tagging our ducks that we realised we’d spotted a couple of gadwalls which was a first for us.
In keeping with most of the other ducks Mr & Mrs gadwall were already paired up.
I've finished editing my video of a cormorant fishing. I had a full five minutes of video before editing of the cormorant swimming around trying to catch a fish. I didn't see it emerge from the water with a fish much to my and I'm sure the cormorants disappointment.
Is it just me or are there times when the cormorant looks like the Loch Ness monster?
If you’d like to see the full video of our visit to RSPB Old Moor I've added it below.
