Malleable Mallard

 

Martin Mere Wetland Centre

 

Knowing how I love birds and wildlife, Frank had been wanting to take me to this wonderful refuge, part of the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust.  So, one particularly icy day, we set off for our visit.  The place exceded any expectations.  While we didn't see any raptors or kingfishers...  we did see many beautiful species of birds - and the cafe is top shelf.  I can't recommend it highly enough - and I hope to return, on a warmer day!

Flexibility par excellence
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Indeed! I wish I could be that flexible!
Oh to be so flexible Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I wish!!!
I looked closely to see it might be anting but I think just regular grooming is going on. It's always such a job to get your back, eh?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I believe you're right...
I have a back scrubber for the job...
Must be handy being able to scratch your own back
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I know - I had to buy a back scrubber!
It looks like a little old lady in a feathered coat!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Ha! That's funny!

Great shot - I couldn't work out its perspective at all from the thumbnail smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Thank you, Anne!
she looks just like one of the two female mallards that visit our feeder three time a day... two more colourful drakes accompany them as well....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Aren't they sweet!
