John it's what I call a real poser - perfect for the camera. :)
You're right there Carol. I would love the opportunity to get some photo's of these. I will never forget the excitement I felt when a pair took up residence on a small loch on my former local patch. (They were very rare in that part of the world). Unfortunately, at that time I did not have a camera capable of doing the job.
This one is playing gooseberry to a nesting pair, it just keeps hanging about - sad really - hope we get some youngsters this year, the pair tried several times last year and the nest was disturbed each time, we have mink and a couple of terrapins (the size of a good dinner plate) either could be the culprit.
