Great images Barry.Is there parking nearby,i'm not familiar with the area,cheers!

Barry Stewart said...

Thanks both. There is free parking by the public toilets on Trawler Road at SS66319264. The bird was on the water most of the time we were there (about an hour), but as soon as we walked away it flew in. It was as if was waiting for us to go to check out if we'd left anything, so you could try mimicking this? Good luck

Thanks Barry,hope to try in the morning.
