At the umpteenth attempt to get it to a manageable size for posting female mandarin duck this pm from West Hide. Just possible from East Hide but the gap through the bushes was only just enough even with spot focussing! Not even going to try to reproduce it.

The Whoopers seemed well ensconced and the various little birds were happy to feed off their efforts. Wonder if they will stay longer than the Bewick did? Plenty of food by the look of it.


Interestingly none of the three seem to be ringed. Looked stunning in the evening sunlight .

Walkies

One of the few times they seemed to be upright. At least I can now tell the difference between a Whooper backside in the air and a Mute one. Must look up the old Bewick pics and see if I can see another difference!
From the East Hide.
