Plas Crug Avenue etc.

I've never seen as much surface water along Plas Crug Avenue, but even so I didn't expect to find 12 Mallards on one of the flooded areas. A Kingfisher in the ditch was my first of the year.
Then to the Old College, where the male Black Redstart showed briefly.  Finally,a short seawatch: just two Red-throated Divers and 14 Common Scoter, nine of which were much closer in than usual, and all drakes.
