    Kind regards, 


  • Nice pictures Jim,the female Pochard has an interesting feathering pattern on her flanks that do not always see when they are busy diving


    Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can

  • Nice set of photos Jim, so glad the weather held up for your two days and got to revisit LM. As Pete says, the marbled plumage on the Pochard is beautiful.

    @ Pete, I had to ask what it was because I did not recognise it.

    @ Hazel, Thank you and the weather did hold off took quite a few pictures so will show some later. I have to go out now and show a nephew how to take some pictures of pizzas topping that he is bringing over to my sisters.
