Another from Martin Mere

By Peagreen
Once again have been very busy with one thing and another!! Honestly don't know how I ever had time to go to workGrin Sorry for only clicking on some of your uploads but wanted to catch upSmile

This is another Duck from my visit to Martin Mere in October. Taken through the wire meshing surrounding the enclosure. Caught him/her having a good old scratch, hence the balancing actSmile Cropped and framed on picnik.

A big thanks to Mike (mikeakabigman) for the ID. it's an Australian Wandering Whistling DuckSmile

Thank you all for your lovely comments and for your votes and time on my last upload, 'Yellow' Very much appreciatedSmile
Take care, hope you are all well Smile ...Pauline
