This afternoon, on our second attempt, we were successful in tracking down the adult male Ring-necked Duck at Hardley Staithe. Despite the ferocious winds and lashing rain, we located the RNG on the more distant angler’s pond, in the company of Pochard and Tufted Duck. Managed to hold the ‘scope steady enough to see the salient  features and take a few grab-shots of this increasingly scarce American vagrant. A Norfolk ‘tick’ for me.
