There's always one
Spot the odd one out!

In another of the more enclosed pools came across these whistling ducks. The first time I'd seen any ducks in this family.

They're really rather attractive with those large whitish flank feathers (not visible in this image sadly).

They're all standing on one leg, so what else could it be... the one furthest right has turned its head so it's nicely lit in profile, and is simpering rather self-consciously for the camera. Anyway, a charming image Delia!
