Eurasian Wigeon female - Anas penelope

Filmed at Cannop Ponds, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, UK.

Thanks Nath for your help.

Please can you sign this petition to stop the proposed M4 over the Gwent Levels. I feel strongly about this because it is a place I visit a lot. The damage to the Gwent Levels along with Magor Marsh and the Newport Wetlands will be irreparable!


Please look at my website bobswildlife.co.uk. There is a photo of an Starling,  and  the Smew by Dave Key  in the 'Guest photographer'

  1. It's a duck! :) ok, that is all I can tell.

    I am with you on the protection of the park. I don't think I can sign the petition since I am not British, but want to push all the world away and leave just nature. I wonder if that can be done?
