A new visitor to the patch

Taken on a bleak and cold day near Ullswater.
Bitter cold as I checked out the flood this morning, wall to wall low cloud trying to dump sleet and hail, but it generally turn to rain for the day.
       Nice surprise this morning as the old bins alighted on a newcomer to the flood a Shoveler and after the news got round its looks like this is a patch first. So the number of species continues to grow, and the area is beginning to attract more interest. Still good numbers of Lapwing about , quite a few Oystercatchers this morning and Mallard, but not many Snipe.

The Westies having a rest after play fighting and chasing each other round the house.
