The other day I took a drive over to the Somerset Levels for a mornings birding. This is the view from one of the hides at a place called Catcott Lows. It is a specially good place in winter for wildfowl and during migration for waders (shorebirds). On this day in late March there were still plenty of ducks around. This pair of Eurasian Wigeon were reasonably close for me to take a photo. A male Northern Shoveler was also showing off his smart spring plumage.Any guesses as this this dabbling duck? (-:I guess that pin of a tail was a good giveaway. This male Northern Pintail was further out and required quite a bit of cropping.On the way to my next stop on the Levels this male Kestrel was intent enough on his next meal to allow me a couple of shots.
