What did I twitch? Well there isn't much around at the moment that I could and would twitch. So if you are a London birder is should be quite obvious. But if you are not you probably won't know. The bird is a female Long-tailed Duck, quite rare inland, especially odd in the urban water of Rotherhithe. How can I justify this? Well to that I have an answer. You see the long-tailed Duck is a Sea Duck. So as any Wildlife photographer will know photographing a bird out at sea isn't easy as they are usually so far out. So how could I pass off an opportunity to photograph a species like that up close? It was too good to miss.
Well I will let you have your own opinion on whether or not I am a twitcher, but I still say that I am not.
