...leading to action on the water.
Periods of calm...
alternating with squables.
Note the serrated "teeth" on the edge of the goose's tongue.
Two pair of Mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) around too.
January 29th. I was surprised to see a male Hooded Merganser (Lophodytes cucullatus)...
...and its mate.
A pair of Mallards (Anas platythrnchos) too.
January 30th. Cloudy.
A fraction of all the Mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) at the marsh.
