This is a Common Shelduck that I photographed yesterday at what seems like my second home, Slimbridge.

It follows the theme of my old image posted yesterday of the Eagle Owl's nicely lit under wing combined with the theme of Dave V's excellent Shelduck image from yesterday.

Thanks to Phil and Rob for their excellent company again yesterday, and thanks to the birds for cooperating, except that ever elusive Bittern.

Special thanks to all who voted or even took the time to look, it is very much appreciated.
