Mandarin at Shibdon

First Mandarin in Gateshead for about 3 years i think? got a text from George saying he had found a Mandarin at shibdon :) cheers George, keep them coming! i managed to get myself out of bed and get to shibdon 3 hours later :0 at first i could't see the bird but it was soon flushed by gulls from the island, i tried to feed it bread ;) lol, for some close shots but it was having none of it! must be a wild one ;) i got a few shots taken from the far side of the pond, not bad for the distance. The long staying ruff was still here, Shibdon is looking good for Avocet :0
