That Pochard is a very handsome duck!
Certainly one of the colourful ones we have Steve
Lovely colours to brighten up those grey days...[;o)
Need something Trevor, but its getting milder.
Vau! Olet nähnyt punasotkan! Onneksi olkoon! Onko siellä kylmä?
Kiitos Anne. Alkaneet lämmittämiseksi.
got to love Pochards and peckers... fabbo shots
Great to see the Woodpecker, always a welcome though infrequent visitor here.
You need a few more trees out there John. :)
Look at the red eyes on that pochard!
A striking feature if you can get the light on them.
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.
Thanks Nora. Yes I am more than happy with the Olympus lenses now.
That woodpecker is really interesting!
Our Green Woodpecker is equally as colourful, not so much the Lesser-spotted though.
Both the duck adn woodpecker shots are superb Roy. Have a wonderful weekend.
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.
Great series of great spotted woodpecker and interspersed with the nice pochard.
