Fudge Duck at Priory Country Park in a ten minute twitch

I stopped at Priory Country Park today to see if I could connect with a Fudge Duck. The weather was very wet and very windy.
Priory Country Park
I parked in the car park of Barkers Lane and walked the twenty feet or so to the edge of the lake.
Within seconds I had the Ferruginous Duck in my scope (154) and then the guy that found the bird approached to ask if I'd found it and to say he can't find the Black Necked Grebe that had been reported so I oblige and locate it for him but it also gives me tick number 155 for the year.
Ten minutes birding gave me two quality ticks for the year.
