Here’s Eight Mallards (Anas platyrhychos), four pair, four male, four females. All were asleep with their heads down. Something made a noise and all the males popped up. Females weren’t bothered and kept sleeping! Who has their priorities right!

Here’s another Eagle shot. This one an immature Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) with a lovely dead Salmon for lunch. This guy will be White by next year. You can just see the white coming in around it’s bill, which will also turn colour as it ages!
