28th November, 2017 Widewater

After doing some shopping in Shoreham, on our way home we stopped off at Widewater and had some close views of the female Goosander just west of the causeway in excellent light.

In the 1960's when we had some proper icy winters, and we even walked on the River Thames when it froze over near Kingston-on-Thames, Tony Quinn and myself counted a flock of c500 Goosanders flying over Walton Reservoir, a sight which I would imagine will never happen again.
