White -headed Duck

It not very  nice today, (the weather), so I'm going to show you something from my sneaky bag. Actually, I am going to give you something that I wouldn't put up on my blog. Basically, it is things that I keep for myself or put in my other sites. It might be from Bristol Zoo, International Centre for the Birds of Prey, etc etc. I went to Bristol Zoo the other day and I found a Raccoon, pacing up and down inside cage 10 x 10 square meters. It was horrible. Anyway, there is a nice place to go, Slimbridge WWT. There is plenty of space for all  species.  And the water, you can use plenty of their hides to see and photograph as well. The next set of birds are from there. Time I gave myself a break from giving you my sort of trivial.

  6. Lovely photos again Bob! What a pretty and rather unusual looking duck. I haven't been lucky enough to visit Slimbridge for a long time but it is a wonderful place.

    How very sad about the Racoon. I didn't think that sort of thing still happened in this country. I couldn't bear to see it, just thinking about it makes me feel awful.

  9. Bob, he has a marvelous nose! His facial characteristics are especially enhanced by the photos you've taken of 'His magesty, the blue-nosed, white-headed duck!'

  11. Helloooooo-o? I never saw a duck, or any bird as a matter of fact with a blue beak! That is so special!
    Thank goodness you have always something smashing, or pretty, or colorful, or plain gorgeous and beautiful, to show us!
    No, actually: thanks Bob! :-)

  24. That bill is really unique. Nice shot and looks great! I'm having to go into my bag of tricks as well to finish off the month of July. The weather has been too difficult to work with here and I am trapped most of the time inside of building due to the extreme heat and humidity.
