Chetwynd Pool - Long-tailed Duck

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?
