  7. Love all those shots Roy! Especially the woodpecker, he is so pretty. Your lenses seem to be working very well for you. I have never seen either of these birds. If either of these birds showed up here the birders would be all lined up for miles. I like that pochard a lot. I want one.

    1. Our Green Woodpecker is equally as colourful, not so much the Lesser-spotted though.

  10. Stunning series of shots Roy, especially the lovely but often overlooked Pochards. Indeed our wonderful winter wildfowl really do prove that winter is far from dull if you know where to look.
