A male Common Pochard was among 3 Red Heads and many Mallards at the fishing
access north of Port Henry late this morning. A friendly couple was kind
enough to lend me their scope. They had just come from Nantucket where they
saw two Lapwings trying to overwinter. The couple then packed up their
optics and prepared to drive straight home.to West Virginia. And it took
me until today to get myself over to the lake from my home in Weybridge. I
will have to work on my priorities.
