Wasn't going to post the LBD photo as it's not a patch on Keith's (not least that it was awake), but it does show a size comparison with the teal behind it. The LBD wasn't as close as the 60 or so twite that landed on the fencing at Banks Marsh (end of Old Hollow Farm track). Also m&f merlin together out on the marsh and a water pipit at the wildfowlers pull-in (off Marine Drive) among the cast of 1000's birds.
