First of all apologies for the lack off posts off late, work, DIY and bad luck to blame. Still mid April wil see two weeks off work and hopefully an increase in posts. Well the Ring Necked duck was the only thing that got within camera range this weekend. About 30yards off the hide!! Light was a problem with sun going in and out, but a glimpse of sunlight when the bird was close to the hide was welcome.
Ring Necked Duck
Bit off preening to be done.
Bit of a stretch.
The sun came out briefly on this one so we can observe the plumage more clearly.
