Avian portraits

There were lots of Mallards. They seemed able to spot a brown paper bag of bird seed at one hundred paces and came rushing over in their hoards!

This spring's young Mallards have almost lost all their downy feathers by now.

I have a soft spot for these White Faced Whsitling Ducks - they are such posers and make a wonderful sound.

There's always a cheeky robin around who's willing to pose for the camera - this one could do with a bit of a wash and brush up!

A Nene or Hawaian Goose - one of the WWT's great success stories - once on the verge of extinction, they're now doing very well.

I have no idea what sort of duck this is but he/she is very pretty!

A Magpie Goose. They don't usually have anything to do with the centre's visitors but one of the staff told me that this young lady has laid seven eggs in the last week and was making an exception to the no-humans rule and she's so hungry from all her exertions!

Annbramwell I love ducks, they always have a sort of half smile on their faces, and they look kind of friendly... that poor Robin looks like he has been dragged through a hedge backwards..
