Cornwall's wintering Ring-necked Duck was today seen courting this female Tufted Duck at Stithians Res. He couldn't keep his eyes off her but she didn't take much notice! The display included head flicking, neck stretches, skypointing and spraying water, all very similar to a Goldeneye's courtship behaviour.
Excellent behaviour shots, well done Kate.ReplyDelete
