Yo peeperooneys Nice day at the wetlands yesterday morning. Cold, but fresh and bright. Good visibility for smudging. First stop/pool was the mergansers habitat with an American wood duck also residing. The Mrs Hooded Merganser was ‘giving it plenty’ with the beautiful barnet and the wood duck drake didn’t look too shabby either!
This little bufflehead drake was getting his knickers in a twist showing off rotten
I was pleased with the water effects for the background of this handsome white-headed drake (you know I love my water effects) with the old current bun reflecting off the reeds
I was a little apprehensive entering the pool with the black swans with this chap standing guard and daring me to enter. It’s the start of the breeding season and the black Monty Don’s get a little aggressive
Well peeps, you know I also love a headshot for my portrait gallery, so was pleased to capture the wild tufty drake as he flew in to nick a bit of the collection birds tucker
Also was taken with the red-crested pochard drake who reminded me of my David Bowie cover ‘Pin Ups’, taken back in the 70’s with Twiggy
