well not really, except for the similarity in name and the fact that it's a yank. blue-winged is in the same genus as shoveler these days: spatula

Brilliant thanks Julie. Also had Merlin and Ling-tailed Duck. Highlight though was meeting my birding buddies little boy for the first time. A beautiful little baby boy.

Oh dear. Was this seen as a kind of sarcasm?
I hope not.
Julie's offer of a bunny as a solution made me smile so I thought I would thank her with the nearest pic I had: a Brown Hare recently photo'd on Islay.

Quite often there were two hares close together so we guessed they were siblings and quite young. A few times they explored the yard in front of the cottage an seemed particularly taken by our car and went underneath it and sniffing around the wheels,

They look quite cute when they adopt the 'tea-cosy' pose and hunker down to concentrate on eating, with their legs hidden underneath them, but my goodness when something startles them and they go up on tip-toe you realise how huge their back legs are and when they run they are blindingly fast.

Beautiful animals.

LOL. If only......

Back in Sheffield now. Chances of Golden Eagles significantly reduced! Buzzards and Sparrowhawks likely though, and we often get Long-tailed Tits in the back garden.
