Shelduck, Gadwall and Shovelers take flight

Observation - Shelduck, Gadwall and Shovelers take flight - UK and Ireland. Description: All three species took off when a worker came to adjust the sluices (at least I think that's what he was doing). The Shelduck are obvious, as are the Gadwall; the Shoveler at the bottom of the picture seems still to be in partial eclipse.
