Duck giving the run around (29/12/14)

First time i've been out in ages and went over to Jubilee River for the drake Ring-necked Duck, but it had disappeared and no sign of the Jack Snipe.

I then decided to see if the duck had moved back to Bray GP's.  It had - I found it at the back of the gravel pits by the motorway picked up by its grey flanks with a white peak to the front.  It was mostly asleep but did poke its head a couple of times where I got reasonable views of its bill.
