Venus Pool - Red-crested Pochard pair

A nice surprise today was a pair of Red-crested Pochard found on the adjacent fishing pool but easily observed from the oak tree at the top of the causeway!... Just a narrow stretch of shallow water between the poolside bushes and they steamed into it nicely!

The drake in all it's finery, plus a bit of weed...

Wonder if they are the pair which were briefly seen on New Years Day at Trench Middle Pool?
