Tufties.



For the second year running I have logged Tufted Ducks on the pond on my local patch but this is the first season that I have noted successful breeding. For many weeks there were five or six males but only one female! These images were taken last month but I haven't seen them since .... so who knows where they are now.   FAB.

  1. Frank, these are terrific images. The reflections you've managed to capture [the water reflections] are like doubling the pleasure!!! Well done.

    Thanks for stopping by and linking up on the Bird D'Pot meme at I'd Rather B Birdin'. Hope to see you often.
