Bird of the week

There are a number of fields near where we live that are so waterlogged that they are a favourite place for ducks like these today.


Two drakes and a hen mallard duck

Although you can quite clearly see the female on the ground I didn't realise she was there until I saved the photos to my computer.

Just out of shot were two more drakes. Pictures taken from 30 yards away.

Nice captures Bob, they look like they're enjoying their surroundings!

I love finding surprises in my shots :)

Hi BOb - they've got glorious colours haven't they ... yes the fields were still saturated when I went up the M40 to Stratford at the weekend ... it's when we get swans in the middle of the fields I laugh ... so incongruous ...

Cheers Hilary
