|Male Tufted Duck|
The rest of this lap around the broad was pretty quiet and quite muddy. I did see another great crested grebe, still in it's winter plumage with signs of it's crest beginning to emerge for the breeding season, and a cormorant was fishing out on the open water. The last section of our walk takes us through a small wooded area to the car park. Here, we get a few feet away to a tiny goldcrest. I try to get a shot of it, but goldcrests never stay still for long. Any top tips for photographing goldcrests, anyone?
Finally, at the car park, I watch many black-headed gulls line up in a row along the rooftop of the cafe. If you don't know your gulls, black-headed gulls are small gulls with dark red bills and legs, black wingtips and, at this time of year, a black spot behind the eye.
