We had another go with the duck trap this morning. After waiting for what seemed an age, we let the lid down and caught 17 Shelduck and a Moorhen. The latter was an especially attractive individual so I rather rapidily wrapped my hands around it and gave it a leg iron!
See - she is a stunner!
And here's a couple of Shelduck shots, this is an bird born this summer (so aged as a 'three'). In the open wing pic notice the broad white tips to the secondaries and dark marks in the white scaps.
