Venus Pool - Green-winged Teal

A great find from Dave Chapman got Saturday off to a great start with a Green-winged Teal turning up at Venus Pool.

Looking pretty good with all the right credentials! Nice vertical white bar and lack of horizonal one. The creamy buff border to the green strip is restricted to below the eye only, plus warmer colouration to the breast.

Getting a little frisky at the sight of out Euro lassies!

I had to dash mid morning and good timing as it was looking a bit sleep?

Very sleepy in fact!

Nice one Dave Chapman!
