Venus Pool - male Garganey

A late start today but all was not lost - Rob Stokes had found a male Garganey first thing and whilst very mobile, feeding up like crazy, it was clearly going nowhere in a hurry. The light was better too!

I'll spare you the many distant images - here's the closer action.....


Never far from the weed, clearly full of dabbling goodies!


Time to move on to the next patch.......




Occasionally and very briefly in open water!


A quick wingflap.....


Followed by a rest on terra firma!


And a preen.....


Pick of the bunch threesome?






Maybe he's longing for a female? A quick fly over to Wall Farm would put that to rights!
