From the Pens at Slimbridge - 5th May 2015

Bewicks Swan

I don't normally take images from the "captive" pens at Slimbridge, but thought I would have a go to warm me up before venturing into the "wild side"! Below are some of my favourites:

Common Eider (Cuddy Duck or St Cuthberts Duck).





I love seeing and hearing Cuddy Ducks - their call always reminds me of elderly lardies watching a naughty film or even reaching an ongoing orgasm!

Lesser Scaup

Maybe this is what the elderly ladies were watching in order to sound like Cuddy Ducks!
