The Redhead Goosander was again showing "ridiculously well" late this afternoon at Leathes Ham, it was right in front of the feeding area, often going after other ducks if they took some bread when being fed by members of the public. I had a problem with a new memory card which didn't seem to be formatting properly, so I had to quickly edit some images to obtain some super close- up shots of the head when it swam left and was well lit with the setting sun. Wigeon and Gadwall were also posing nicely for the camera, c10 Pintails upending over the far side and the usual pale- headed individual came close again. A 7- Spot Ladybird was on the brick wall outside the front door this afternoon today, too.
