Comments:
With Alan Ryff in search of garganey. Not being able to see into glare of setting sun or hold a scope still in the strong winds, we went to view from beneath the settling ponds. Finding nothing and seeing some excitement back on 123, we left and returned to 123 where we were told the garganey had just flown and disappeared behind the corner where we had just been. We returned, of course, as did a few others, but the bird was not found again.
