At Alkborough Pintail are mainly passage birds in October-November with few staying for long but this autumn seems to be different with a small flock regular for the last 4-5 weeks; usually only about 10 but 23 today - normally always the furthest birds from the hide the wind and the harriers today moved them closer and luckily the sun was out when they did a quick fly by -- not seeing Pintail well that often I had failed to appreciate the differences in upper wing pattern of 1cy males and females - fantastic ducks
