A Trio of Tails

So yesterday I mentioned how the excellent numbers of wildfowl on the flood water in the valley didn't contain anything other than usual Axe species. But this morning...

Three truly beautiful drake Pintail on Bridge Marsh. Happy days.


  1. Hi Steve,
    Maybe be the three that flew over the Otter estuary in the middle of the day yesterday. One stunning drake joined the Wigeon on the scrapes for a short while before flying off alone up river. Peter

    1. Hi Peter. Yes could well have been, they are pretty scarce east of the Exe in Devon. Wow imagine one of these in with the Wigeon during a cannon netting session. What a catch that would be!! Thanks for the comment, appreciated. Steve.
