An excellent shot of this handsome eider duck drake, I like the waves he's making and the way you've caught him swimming towards you. It was really entertaining to watch and listen to these birds, they have real charm and character. Hopefully we'll have the chance to meet up at Slimbridge again in the spring when there are lots of baby birds about and the summer migrants have arrived.
