Waterbirds galore.

A bright, sunny morning tempted me out with the camera.
First up was a displaying Goldeneye on the Lagoon.
Head well back!
The Slavonian Grebe was showing well but not quite as well as yesterday.... nevertheless  it was 'asking' for a few more images!

 Firstly wing flapping....

It can look sleek

..or dumpy

..or streamlined!

Whatever, a superb bird!
The Coots have started there threatening displays and fights are getting into gear!

Out in the middle of the harbour the Ruddy Shelducks continue to show well....although quite distant and fairly 'jumpy' which makes me believe they could be 'genuine'!

The long stay Ruddy Shelducks

Their colour certainly draws attention!
