Ruddy Duck at Thomas Point

I had to work this morning, so I missed the early show, but I got to Thomas Point around 10:30 and met Graeme. We spent a lot of time looking for unusual ducks, but found mostly the usual suspects. A Ruddy Duck swam in quite close to shore and entertained us for quite a while.
