Glimpsed some common mergansers out in the middle of the south end of Lake
Dunmore this morning, so I just went back with my binoculars. Very glad I did
because I added Hooded Mergansers to my Life List! 8 male & 2 female commons
and 2 pair of hoodeds. Also a pileated in the garden this morning and a
lone(some) mourning dove.
Shelagh in Leicester.
