Unseasonal Teal at Porth Hellick

Drake Teal at Porth Hellick was an usual record for this time of year 

   A twenty minute look at Porth Hellick this afternoon found a drake Teal feeding in front of the Sussex Hide. The last sighting of Teal was the 18th April when there was a female with  2 ducklings. The following days there was no sign of any Teal until this drake arrived today. Also there was a Little Egret resting on the island, 21 House Martin and nearby, only 1 Turtle Dove was at Salakee.
