Green Winged Teal at Saltholme

I decided to pay a visit to Saltholme on my way to do some shopping to see if I could catch a glimpse of the Green Winged Teal which was present yesterday.  I managed to pick up a few more ticks along the way including Great Spotted Woodpecker near the Phil Stead Hide and Goldfinch.  From the main hide at Saltholme got Pintail and Goldeneye together with Pochard, Widgeon, Golden Plover, Little Egret and Heron and eventually after a long wait the Green Winged Teal appeared.  Although the bird was not that far away the light was terrible so the photos are not as good as they possibly could have been, but a record shot anyway.
