An Early Afternoon trip took my Parents and I to Upper Roddlesworth Res near Darwen to go and see the Juvy Long Tailed Duck that has been present whilst i was was in Denmark.
The Bird didn't show for the first 30 minutes, but eventuall gave distant but decent scope views. The Bird was rather active and sometimes dived for as much as 5 minutes at a time which was astounding!
A nice Year tick, and County bird
