Common Goldeneye at Thomas Point.

The weatherman predicted icky weather today, but it was still clear at 7:30, so I went to Thomas Point to see what was up.  Quite a few ducks were around, and I stayed long enough to get a couple of swans and the closest ducks.

It started raining around 9:30 and I headed home.

Some thoughtful person has installed a couple of benches at the point so us old folks can sit and enjoy the show.
