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
until the next time my friends xx i Jedi de Quack
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
