American Wigeon at Oakley Street.

I got up early, determined to give Blackwater a try even though it’s early in the season. It wasn’t a waste, but the good birds just weren’t there.

A few Eagles put on a show, and there were plenty of Northern Shovellers, but not much else.

I stopped at Oakley Street for a while and got e few decent shots of the last of the season’s ducks.
