  9. Just a fantastic looking duck. I hope to see it when I visit Britain this summer. It's ironic that, if I am not mistaken, the UK now has the largest population of this species in the world.

  19. You did extremely well to get such wonderful close-up of this bird, Bob. In my experience they are usually very nervous birds! I hope that you are making the most of this fine weather. Best wishes - - - - Richard
