Again taken at Mallard's Pike in the Forest of Dean on a overcast day, wet and cold, as with the previous upload of the Mandarin Duck.
There were plenty of Grey's around foraging for food in the leaf litter then I spotted this fella sitting in the tree watching me watching the birds with my camera at the ready. He was quite happy to sit there and have his portrait taken.
I hope you like him. Many thanks for all the C&C's on my uploads, every one is very much appreciated. Have a great weekend.
Steve.
