  1. Found these today among the usual ducks and was amazed by the color of their eyes. Immediately felt being watched.

    Nice image.
  3. Thanks.

    Thanks. No, but maybe they were not in the mood.. is was very windy and all those ducks looked as if they felt a bit uncomfortable in the rough water.
    But it did dive.

    This is a Tufted Duck (Aythya fuligula), the first image excellently shows a male in winter flumage with the long wispy tuft on his nape. These are present all year long in the UK and I enjoy watching them at local reservoirs/pools particularly when they dive in search for food.
