After enjoying the 'bonus' drake Garganey the previous day to brighten up the #BIGday. I had a chance to spend more time with it today (in much better light) from the members hide. A fiercely territorial Coot spoilt things generally but gave the opportunity for a flight shot or two!
It always tried to come back......
Keeping a wary eye out for the Coot!
Occasionally lit up in the sunshine.....
Plenty of posing opportunities!
And 'feeding' which it did for most of the time!
And yes, it did come as close as you could hope for :-)
Never mind the BIG day, it certainly brightened up proceedings today!
