This image of a drake Wigeon was taken at the watersports centre at Stithians Dam on Boxing Day. The Wigeon flock feed on the grass fairly close to the road and I managed to take this shot from the car window with the 300mm F/2.8 lens.
Why the poor start? Sadly, I won't be posting so many images for the next three months or so as an arm wrestling game at Christmas ripped my wrist ligaments. With the arm in plaster and my inability to even lift the camera, one minutes' stupidity has cost me three months enjoyment. I will just have to do my best as and when opportunities arise.
