This is a White-eye Duck, it's a female and they don't have white eyes.
Well this was more by luck than judgement, the non-bird photographers that comment and criticise about the position of wing feathers, catch lights and blurring really should "have a go". It takes a heck of a lot of practise.
My number one mentor Mr Phil has bludgeoned sharp eyes and non-messy backgrounds into me quite relentlessly since our first meeting.
Yes it's true what he preaches but this one does indicate that luck plays a major role at times.
This was photographed some time ago at Martin Mere.
There is a glimpse of the sun, I hope it shines on you and that you have a great day.
