A brief visit to Johnsons Marsh, Scalby.

Drake Garganey

A planned visit to see the two drake Garganey on Johnsons Marsh, Scalby was put on hold this morning with dull, misty conditions. However, confirmation this afternoon of their continued presence made our minds up to visit, albeit briefly. We have driven past these ponds many times, without stopping, and will now look in when passing! We only spent fifteen minutes but touched base with two year ticks - Garganey and Curlew.
