    A late afternoon visit to Doddington today and I was quite excited to record my 3 mandarins, 2 males and 1 female, until I opened the blog and saw Mike & Andy’s 9 this morning! However, I also had a male goosander and the keeper reported a red kite last Monday, the 4th. Flew low over the woods and then drifted off south.
