Yankee Doodle Dandee - American Wigeon
Although not a mega rarity these days American Wigeon are still quite rare although over the last few years they've been almost annual in Cheshire. Still, it was nice to catch up with this nice male at Burton Mere Wetlands RSPB courtesy of some eagle eyed spotting by Colin Wells. Cheshire & Wirral's good run continues with the Laughing Gull at New Brighton, Snow Buntings nearby, this American Wigeon, a Long-eared Owl at the same site and the redhead Smew still hanging on at Newchurch.
