  17. Looks like he's a very thorough bather! I bet the mother bird taught him to scrub behind his ears. Fun to see, looks like he really enjoyed himself. Great captures.

  21. Hola. Voy viendo tus bellas fotos Bob. Y aprendiendo con tus patos y pequeñas aves del bosque de Dean y alrededores. Busqué el lugar en Google Maps, y parece un lugar encantador....
    Muy bonita esta serie de nuestra Urraca o Pica pica.
    Es dificil conseguir esos azules de sus alas.... Te felicito.
    Un fuerte abrazo
