Looking for a Water Rail and found a site first…

Given that that this morning was very frosty and the ponds at Toad Holes Beck could be frozen there was a good chance of finding a Water Rail. So off I went there was no Water Rail…

But to my surprise the top pond was unfrozen and in amongst the local Mallards was a pair of Gadwall…”A site first! ” bringing the total of different species I have recorded at the 3 sites to 131.
