White-faced Whistling Duck (Slimbridge WWT)

Talk about the weather, we had a monsoon type. It knock over one of my trees, which I cried, sob sob.  And it fell into another that made it topple, I cried about that one as well, sob sob. Here are the pictures, sob sob.




Nobody has got this one, so, have another try, sob sob sob sob.

  6. First I am pleased you did not get the tree on your head or destroyed your house. Second I realy think you made the duck feel happy. It looks like it is smiling to you. Brilliant photography Bob and thanks for your humor. And great music it was trendy in my youth never heard it again since.

  7. It has brought my old Lilac tree down too Bob...sob, sob, sob :-(

    I love those Whistling Ducks, I see them on Theresa's blog often. Beautiful captures.

    I thought it was a Donkey but I see you had that answer before. The only other one I can think of is a Fox but I suspect I am wrong.

  9. Salut Bob,

    Je ne t'ai pas oublié, juste un peu préoccupé par ma santé, mais je reviens. Je retrouve la qualité de tes photos et l'amour que tu portes aux oiseaux dans leur observation. Ils doivent le savoir et ils te le rendent bien.
    Superbe.

    It hasn't stopped raining here all day. The video slow motion clips were taken a while ago and it took me most of yesterday afternoon to edit and upload.

  29. Oh no.. I'd be sobbing too. Two trees. I'm glad you weren't hurt though.

    Beautiful duck. What a cute expression on the face.

    I'm thinking it looks like the eye of a sleepy lioness or cougar.
