Hi peepsters Had a jolly morning yesterday despite it being a bit Harry & Billy. I drove to the Wetland’s where I was joined by his nibs, Lord Moffo of Twickershire. There was a lot of ice on the water but the current bun was shining, which made for good photography. It was amusing to watch this coot slipping across a pond, but those big old plates of meat are up for the task!
First port of call was the smew pond where I captured this handsome smew drake posing for the ladies (look at that Tony Curtis quiff)
Moving on to the next strip of water I ‘smudged’ a handsome canvasback drake ‘giving it plenty’ He looks like he’s doing that ‘deckchair song!
The next photograph is of a red-crested pochard having a jolly good stretch. In the same pond was a ferruginous drake balancing on the ice and enjoying the sunshine. Bless!
My last shot is of this mandarin drake enjoying the morning sun. I know I post a lot of smudges of this flamboyant lady luck, but who can resist when they look this gorgeous?
Until the next time my friends tooty frooty xx i Jedi de Quack
