What a great selection of photos.
The questionable Golden Eye, is a Golden Eye. For me, probably one of the most distinguishing differences between Golden Eye and Tufted, apart from the tuft on the heads of tufted ducks, are the stripes on the wings of Golden Eye's.
Now you've become nicely acquainted with you local reserve, we'll be seeing more photos and reports hopefully.
If you have a look for other reserves nearby, they could be worth a visit, or two, and also National Trust properties, many of which will have a lot of land attached making a home for nature.
Good work and I look forward to the next posting.

A few from yesterday mornings quick visit......
It was freeezing......
The deer watching the sly old fox....needless to say the fox had no luck getting breakfast from what I saw...
Enjoying the sunrise...some much needed heat....
Not too bad for a flying visit I think.
