Yankee Wigeon

For the first time this year I managed to get out at lunch to see the 1st winter American Wigeon that had been found the day before amongst the large flock of its European counterparts. In a strong bitterly cold wind I struggled to find it but after finding a sheltered spot I soon picked it out at the back of the flock. I showed beautifully in the winter sun but all to soon I had to head back to work.
