Handsome these colourful ducks, aren't they Bill.

A terrific picture you've got of him lad - very well done.

It's wonderful to see you posting again too.... I hope you've been keeping well through this last difficult year.

BTW our new system searches the Gallery differently, now finding images through information in the Tags. So, as well as entering the scientific name in the Scientific Name field, it also needs to be entered as a Tag, along with the common name and location (country at least).

Any other information you want to add to the Tags for your own use would be a bonus! I hope you can help with this.
Thanks Delia much appreciated it has been a long and trying year but we have managed to get through and all jabbed up so good to go when they let us out. Low Barns is opening the gates on the 15th apparently there are Curlews in the field out our back and two Buzzards overtop yesterday but not much life about as yet apart from blooming Starlings they sort of Murmerised our house this evening I had to go out and wash the windows...:)
