The list is not always straightforward. Following is the dilemma from today's trip.
List from today with 2 questions - partly because I went to a couple of other places and caught a case of the "where did I see it" syndrome.

1) Did we see a Shoveler at Hardwick? (Have included it on the list)
2) Did someone mention seeing a Greylag? (not included on list)

Canada Goose, Mute Swan, Shoveler, Gadwall, Wigeon, Mallard, Pochard, Tufted Duck, Goldeneye, Goosander, Moorhen, Coot, Black-headed Gull, Common Gull, Herring Gull, Woodpigeon, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Magpie, Carrion Crow, Coal Tit, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Long-tailed Tit, Nuthatch, Blackbird, Robin, Dunnock, Chaffinch.

Also the Scaup that wasn't a Scaup could well be a Tufted Duck Scaup cross - they are known and classically whilst a fem Tuftie can have white at the base of the bill it should not have anywhere near as much as that one did.
