Venus Pool - Shoveler time

The pool is still not delivering much in the way of waders and other than a distant Osprey (seen twice), I haven't had much to show for time spent there. Gorgeous light today however so I thought I'd single out the drake Shovelers for attention, lots of action, they were looking quite smart and there were droplets too!

The Red Arrows will be be troubled by their more random flight display formation?

The most useful bill in duckland?

Paddle-by reflections...

And a bit of a preen...

Then there had to be droplets?

And just showing off by diving!

What happened next?

Yes you guessed it!

Normal birding will be resumed in due course...
