Long Tailed Duck at Thomas Point.

I inteneded to try Possum Point this morning, but it was very windy, so I waited until 8:00 and went to Thomas Point.

There were a few birds  close enough for decent pics, and the light was not bad, so I did OK.

I then stopped by my friend’s house on Thomas Point Road and found more nice birds in good light and fairly close. Yet another good winter’s day.
