Long-tailed Duck, Deeping High Bank

I remember the 5th of November, 2004, when young William Bowell found a Long-tailed Duck at what was then called Welland Bank Pits, S Lincs, and is now called Deeping Lakes LWT. That apparent first-winter drake relocated later to Prior's Fen in Cambs, in january 2005, where it was discovered by local birder Phil Todd. A couple of years later, on 23rd December 2006, Josh Jones found a Long-tailed Duck on The Ocean, Baston & Langtoft pits. This was the last LtD in the PBC area until saturday when Tony Rowe ahd his new-to-birding mate Phil found this apparent female on the Welland a mile or two from Deeping Lakes LWT.
