What a fantastic day, warm weather and slight winds from the west and ducks to enjoy.
The buffies and ruddies had a fine day puddling and diving. Even the resident mallards took to diving for corn. Why that's a first for me, I've only seen them tipping (bottoms up!) before now.
We have some swans about. The singing last night was a bit of old magic. We only have about 3 dozen. You cannot imagine what a couple hundred of these spectacular birds sound like unless you are HERE! Hopefully we will get those hundreds before they leave for northern climes!
BUT here is my new duck, a female canvas back. She came in today in the company of a female bluebill.
Isn't she pretty?
Beautiful ducks and a pleasure to watch them run about.
