Taken today on a very good but cold visit to Slimbridge. Lots of changes taking place with new exhibits being prepared for summer. This duck which I think is a Pochard (but please put me right if its not) just sat in the water trying to stare me out. The look, the hair just made me laugh. As always I hope everyone is well.
