One Word Sunday

Knot

On reading the prompt for One Word Sunday: Knot it was ìnevitable that I would go with a photo or two of Red Knot I photographed on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton early one autumn morning.

After feeding, bathing and preening while I took photos this one settled down for a nap. At which point I headed home to get some breakfast.

Throwback Thursday

Napping male Common Pochard.

Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire in the 1990s. This male Common Pochard (Aythya ferina) was napping in front of a wooden hide (blind) on Hurleston Reservoir in south Cheshire. The ripples and peeking eye add to the image for me.

Large numbers of Common Pochard winter in the U.K. and this bird was in a small flock that visited the reservoir.
