I got a message from Martin Grant this morning, doing his monthly duck count he had found a... 'Long-tailed Duck on Chetwynd Pool'. Wow, that's the fourth in the county in the space of a month and despite my viral throat, I figured a bit of fresh air would do me good.
It was reasonably showy too (for a while) and the calm water was coloured up nicely from the tree reflections...
Another 1w female methinks?
I sensed there might be a bit of a reflection opportunity from the duck as well!
And slowly but surely, it cruised into the calmer water...
Two for the price of one!
Well done Martin, a cracking find! Fresh air and duck therapy, the perfect cure to winter ailments... Now where's that bottle of wine?
