|This is the stunning view from the Oxwich hide, looking up towards Penrice Church on Gower in South Wales.|
|There were a few Ducks and Moorhens about.|
|Left: Moorhen, front: Shoveler|
|I think this is a male Teal, though the green eye-patch is barely visible.|
|I believe these are female Teal.|
|You can see the Teal's green eye-patch here quite clearly (front left).|
P.S. Posting these duck photos was something of an afterthought, as they were somewhat 'incidental': I was really homing in on Swans and Snipe, and just took a few extra pictures as the ducks sailed by. Ducks, however, make good subjects in their own right, so I shall look out for future opportunities. Meanwhile, here is a particularly good duck photo tip from Austin Thomas.
Looks like a perfect location to watch wildlife...and so nice to see a bluish sky, which has also added a nice tinge to the water!
lovely photos, teals are suck cute little ducks! I've never seen a shoveller, but have recently found out where they can be seen in Edinburgh....
