Common Pochard
Comments(3) # Common Pochard london e17

So, here's the first in our "Lovely Weather for Ducks" series, celebrating the rather wet and windy meteorology that is currently engulfing London, is a male Common Pochard. And is he enjoing the drafty precipitation? I don't think he is particularly though he was, unlike many species usually to be seen on this stretch of East End, still out in it. The Little Grebes, which are usually very numerous here were nowhere to be seen at all. Ms.Pochard was, as we'll see tomorrow, even less impressed. I do like the way the water drops can be seen to be running off his feathers, well oiled obviously. Canon EOS 40D
