A Coot was even closer. I love the disruption to the reflected reeds making a beautiful pattern.
A smart looking male Tufted Duck showing off that lovely purple sheen on the head and his quiff!
Blagdon Lake is just 15 minutes drive from Chew Valley Lake (shorter as the Osprey flies I'm sure, not that I'm bitter)! (-: Although no Osprey turned up, I was very pleased to see my first Common Sandpiper of the year feeding along the edge of the dam end of the Lake.
On the way home, I stopped off at Edford Woods to see if the wild Daffodils were out. I'll post about that next time.
