Wigeon

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.

Must have heard me and wasn't happy. Oops

  8. 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.
