Influx of waterbirds!

I accompanied John Marchant on his monthly WeBS count round the Lakes this lunchtime and contrary to what normally happens (ie all interesting webbed-footed birds vanish), there was a mini-influx of waterfowl! OK so nothing earth-shattering but 28 Tufted Duck (up from <10 of late), a Little Grebe (my fourth record for 2011) and a pair of Shoveler (only my second of the year) were a significant improvement on recent fare.
