Martin Mere held plenty of Wigeon last week. A colourful medium sized duck. The numbers increase here in the winter as the birds move south from the colder areas of Scandinavia, Russia and Iceland.
They make a comical squeaking noise which puts a smile on my face while I'm sat in a hide.
A little bit windswept, or slept on it funny. Not sure which.
The water ones are so pretty. And the open mouth one is funny.ReplyDelete
Great shots of the wigeon. Such beautiful colors.ReplyDelete
I'm always so impressed with your bird photography - you do a wonderful job.ReplyDelete

You know Adam I must really make the effort to go to Martin Mere again if i can get shots of Wigeon like that. Tremendous ones which show their tail shape - very hard to see that on the distant flight views I get on Pilling Marsh.ReplyDelete
