Wetlands’s Wonderland

Hi Peepers    Had a jolly time yesterday at the wetlands Barnes WWT.  Wasn’t too cold but the sun came out with his titfer on. First port of call was the pond with the goldeneyes. I think dad has just got his leg over (so to speak) and mum is having a good think about it!

I was pleased with my Barnaby Rudge of the drake canvasback as it’s hard to see the unfortunate clipped wing while the other looks magnificent as he goes full stretch

I spotted this handsome American wood drake lurking in the trees beside the pool. Fortunately the sun shone through and lit him up!

Moving on I ‘captured’ this tufted drake who obliged me by swimming into the middle of the pool where I managed to get reflections from the reeds shimmering on the Neptune’s.  You know I love a water effect.

Close by were a pair of scaup.  I love the way the old current caught the iridescence on dad’s loaf of bread

Another nice water effect was reflected around the white-headed duck as she swam about minding her own business.  Fabulous proboscis, innit

Neptune’s daughter = water     current bun = sun    titfer tat = hat  Barnaby Rudge – smudge = photograph loaf of bread = head

PS  I’ve included the small glossary as a few of my friends in distant lands are discombobulated by the cockney rhyming slang
