This was by far the closest of 270+ Teal off Mudbank today. Teal are pretty infrequent off Mudbank but when they do turn up it can often be in numbers - the assumption being that they've been disturbed en masse from the opposite side of the river. They always stay further out than the Wigeon and often gravitate to the edges of Cockle Sands.
It doesn't seem too bothered by the scary clown mask!
I could only find one of the two male Black Redstarts today.
A Firecrest in the usual bushes behind the cricket club.
