Decoy Park

Spinning round and round

Tuftted Ducks seem the epitome of duckness.
They spin round and around like the rubberised ducks kids play with in their bath tubs.

Their silly little tufts make them look like daft daffy ducks.

Theyre totally quackers (or I am)

Decoy Ducks et al

Decoy Park: home this early Friday evening to Coots, Moorhens, Tufted Ducks, a (juvenile) Greylag Goose.
Also swans, (not on vid) black headed gulls (partially on vid), mallards (only vaguely on vid)
Plus shrieking gulls and screeching girls (thankfully both gulls and girls edited out of vid)

I was hoping to see the Great Crested Grebe apparently seen here a few days ago. But no luck.
All that shrieking and screeching made it scarper. Go fly off for a bit of peace and quiet somewhere else.
