Venus Pool - Ruddy Shelduck

A quick lunchtime 'Goose check' looked proming with a flock of about 80 Greylags present. They were flying out in small groups though and those remaining were all - Greylag! Apart from this little one.....

A rather smart looking (whatever its origins!) Ruddy Shelduck.........






Showing really well?








Taking no nonsense from an inquisitive Coot!






Then getting in a flap.






Seems to be a male with signs of a black neck ring appearing....








And still no White-fronted Goose :-(
