The Mallards were very active today, and the males looking really good in breeding plumage.
A few Dunnocks about..
And Goldfinches finding something to eat amongst the developing blossom..
Lots of Shelducks
and dozens of Black-headed Gulls
And one to add to the year list.. a Water Rail
Around the feeders, the usual culprits..
and the not so usual..
Male Mallards were aggressively chasing off other males
And outside the visitor centre, basking in the sunshine a male Mute Swan
The sunshine was lovely... but my goodness... it was very cold... almost raw out of the sun!!
