I checked out Swanpool today and was pleased to find a drake Garganey feeding near the reed bed end of the pool. It was very close and uncharacteristically tame. In addition, the female Long-tailed Duck was also there and approaching summer plumage.
I took both these images in virtually the same place; the upper one today and the lower one eleven months ago. Perhaps the same bird as there has been a single Greenshank here all winter. Who knows. Anyway, Greenshank always make a decent subject to photo and Point is one of the easiest places to photo them.
