Another chilly vigil

It was another cold one at Tophill Low NR this afternoon as once again I watched the sun go down and birds come in to roost on a semi-frozen D Res. Plenty of Goldeneye late on during proceedings, here are some nice males in another poor quality dusk photo!

A redhead Smew dropped in late-afternoon and 2 Goosanders also came in just before last light. However, there was a definate decrease in the numbers of birds present on the slowly thawing res... and few gulls appeared with maybe just 1500 roosting.

Looking ahead, the dreaded normality of work returns. Though come dusk on Tuesday, maybe I might not be so cold!
