Orgreave Lakes

Decided to stay local today due to public transport running only a skeleton service on Sundays. As a result I headed to Orgreave to continue working my new scope and now practicing digiscoping on whatever was there.
It was very much a case of the usual suspects, though I had fleeting glimpses of Bullfinch which were nice, as well as the usual assortment of wildfowl. A quick sift through the gulls found nothing, except for a couple of juvenile Greater Black-Backs, the fact that I picked these out shows I am getting somewhere with gulls, though slowly. 
There was a flock of wigeon feeding on the near bank and I grabbed a few digiscoped shots of these, as well as the gulls, and it actually came out alright. From now on there will be no bird too war away to photograph.
