Spring is sprung

It's that time of year when the birds start birds and beeing. A trip to Clumber Park found various birds at full throttle. Male mute swan, mallard, coot (falling off the job) were all doing the dominant bit - there is a female under the drake mallard, she's just doing a different version of going down!

Meanwhile the ruddy duck was showing off - sadly a still can't capture the head nodding ......

and the too-distant grebe tried some head shaking then went for some synchronised swimming in a bid to show off ......

sadly the females just slept through it all.

I just ended up feeling vaguely voyeuristic.
