St. Mary's Garganey

After school tonight I went down to St. Mary's to see the garganey that was on the wetland. As soon as we got there, it was showing well near the reeds. We got some snaps but as it was to far away for anything decentwe went to the north bay but nothing to be seen expect 2 rock pipits, 2 oystercatchers and a redshank. When we went back to the wetland, I counted 60 redshank on the far bank along with 5 black-headed gulls and 2 snipe. The garganey had moved to the far side but soon flew off with the other ducks out to sea. I think they will probably be back soon though.
