A few from Marazion and Helston

A quiet day weather wise before the storms later this week.  First call was Longrock pool at Marazion to see if the Great Northern Diver was there, and it was although a little bit distant. So got a few images of that for the record.  I then went to Helston to see if the Whooper swan was still there, and that was there also. At the boating lake there were also about 6 Canada Geese and an unusual Mallard type duck, likely an escapee, I think, if anyone knows better let me know and I will amend the post.

That GND is a stunner Bob. I've only ever seen a juvenile before, so to see one in that stunning plumage is a real treat.
I'm guessing one of the parents of that duck was a bit of a flirt. lol

The GN Diver is a stunner, virtually in summer plum.
