A pleasant walk around the reserve today. Robins and tits flitting between the trees; even the coal tits have started posing for photographs.
Lots of teal; at first I mistook their short whistling calls for wigeon. There was some interesting neck behaviour by some of the male teals in attempts to impress females. And, my word, they are handsome in their mating plumage; it’s not just their head colour but also the stippling and striations of their bodies.
