Tufted Duck - (Aythya fuligula)

Photographed at the northern Cannop Ponds, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, UK.

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 Red-legged Partridge,  and  the Smew by Dave Key  in the 'Guest photographer'

  9. It's a hard species to photograph well Bob. What with the black & white and the tufts on the head, the exposure is critical. You did a fine job mate.

  11. Hi Bob, The Tufted Duck is a very underestimated duck, you can get all different colours around the head as your first image shows, you have caught them perfectly. All the best John
