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.

 He would have looked much brighter if the sun had been shining!    FAB

The forceful 'chuitt .. chuitt .. chuitt' calls of our [Eurasian] Nuthatch (Sitta europaea) have been very loud and far more frequent in recent days so it was great to catch up with one today providing a classic pose.   FAB.
