On Monday I had to take the van over to Stapleford for a repair. The bad news was, they couldn’t do it there and then. The good news was that it’s a recognised fault and they would take pictures, get it authorised by Ford and organise the repairs later.

So I pootled off to Attenborough to visit the ducks as it’s only a few minutes away from the garage….



Mr swan was determined no-one would get past him with any food :)



Mallard drake. A rather underappreciated bird, I think. The spring sunshine shows off his colours nicely.


Male Tufted duck, squinting in the bright sunshine!


Red-crested Pochards. Male, female, synchronised preeening and finally the male again, complete with water drops after surfacing….





Egyptian Goose



Great Crested Grebe.


Dunnock.


Canada Geese, arriving at speed, only to be disappointed at my lack of food…





Two robins. Not fighting, must be springtime!




Tribbles! Onna stick!



There were several Long-tailed tits pobbling about in the trees. Unfortunately they pobble very quickly. Perhaps one day I’ll manage a shot showing the front of one!





I was fortunate to spot a male Gadwall swimming on a small pond/large puddle very close to the path. Lovelt subtle plumage patterns.




And a pretty white duck. Must use Persil to stay as white as that!



I also spotted a number of shoveler ducks but too far away to get a decent picture of.
