The lunch is on David.


Lovely spring find by David Tyler today, this drake Garganey was on Sands Lake, Ainsdale, and not backward about coming forward in the warm sun at lunchtime, as Willow Warblers and Chiffies sang above him.
Great to see one nice and close in such mellow conditions – all power to you, David!
He seemed to prefer the south west corner, but sailed all around the island, getting the odd bit of hassle from the resident Gadwall (the Garganey that is, not Big Hairy Dave).
It was warm enough to get the Common Lizards out basking on the coast today too, as Swallows and Sand Martins tore north – not too many House Martins yet though.
