Venus Pool - Mandy comes close!

There have been occasional sightings on Mandarin at VP lately, usually a single bird but today, there were two clearly present as these elusive visitors finally broke cover! And they were a pair!


The female with all grey bill and more striking eye markings...


And in case there was any doubt about being a female then!


Having been given his marching orders, I sat in the members hide realizing the male was now steaming over to join me...


Putting on a show on the island in front of me...




The grass isn't just greener, it's tastier here?




Quick march...




Back in the water!


And a final wing flapping display...




Not quite so elusive then!
